I first created this piece over 10 years ago. It has gone through many evolutions to where it is today. Cranes are so elegant in their form and as I worked through the technical problems of creating this piece, the sculptural aspect of the birds became ever evolving, as they became taller and more graceful. Each lid is sculpted porcelain. The “foliage series” are first hand thrown and then carved. Lid and vessel are crystalline and metallic glazed.
