Raven Acorn Box
Created by Nancy Y. Adams
Wheel-thrown acorn box with a hand-incised lid. The oak and acorn motifs are hand sculpted, and the raven perched upon the top is hand modeled. Airbrushed matte glazes are fired to maturity in an oxidation kiln. Sculptural yet functional, this box combines the acorn, symbol of the mighty oak, and the raven, bringer of magic, fire, and language to the world. This is an ongoing theme in the artist's work. Signed and dated.
