This owl was created in memory of Josh Thompson, who left this world too early. Josh wore a similar tattoo on his arm, which I interpreted into a sculptural form. The owl is a fencepost finial, designed to dwell on a fencepost or deck railing. It has been an honor to be asked to create this peice.
This Fencepost Finial was commissioned for my dear friend, in honor of her son. The vase features black birds taking flight as well as lyrics from the Beatles’ Black bird song are inscribed among the flower stems.
I have always loved the quote “Memory is so we can have roses in December.” In my world, Pottery brings brightness all year.
