Brother Thomas Bezanson, Large Vase, 2000, porcelain, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Ann L. Bronfman, 2000.61, © 2000, Pucker Gallery, Inc.
The bulbous body of Large Vase is enhanced by the rich mustard yellow, elm-ash glaze that flows from the top. Brother Thomas views his work as a spiritual exercise. This is most clearly the case during the firing process, when he surrenders control over what the piece will look like and accepts the "gifts from the fire." (Artist quoted in, The Boston Phoenix, October 8, 1999)
