This segmented pot is a lesson in dealing with adversity. Originally it was going to be a single vessel, but was damaged before it was completed. I cut away the damage, extended the jagged opening and added "breakage cracks". Then made six more pots, each a smaller version of the original, each mounted inside the previous one, and each with a hole in its side. The innermost pot is the size of a B-B, and it has a hole too.
FYI, in the field of archeology, researchers learn a lot about early civilizations, by piecing together pottery shards
found in situ. This work is dedicated to Native American Archeology. Made of mahogany and poplar, 12" in diameter.
