Tome: one of the books in a work of several.

Fifth Element exhibition 2000. When I first went to the fifth element gallery I was amazed by the large bookcase in the gallery. I began to think of similarities between pottery and books: both are of a domestic size, both are intimate objects that grow on you, both are objects that we can have daily interactions with. A personal story develops with them over time and use. They are familiar.
In this exhibition I wanted to pack the bookcase with tumblers, to recreate the rows of potential knowledge and experience that I sense when walking through a library, or opening a kiln. Thank you to the Fifth Element Gallery for their ongoing support of my work and utilitarian pottery in general. I greatly appreciate their vivacious sprit and energy.
