The Weeper

  • Georgia Blizzard, The Weeper, ca. 1989, low-fired clay, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Chuck and Jan Rosenak and museum purchase, 1997.124.142

Georgia Blizzard created her first figurative pots by surrounding old bottles and jars with clay. She made portraits of people from her past, and haunting images of women with distorted bodies and staring eyes. The distressed face of The Weeper likely relates to the loss of a friend or family member.
