Richard Zane Smith (1955; USA) Wyandot
5/17/2013 - Ceramics and Modern
Corrugated Jar 1991
Earthenware: ht. 13.5 x dia. 15 inches; artist's signature on base.

Richard Zane Smith works from a point of homage to the Wyandot tribes creation myths that say the world was created by putting clay on the back of a tortoise who then spread it until the earth was covered. His decoration, playing with the illusion of depth, is purely contemporary, merging past and present. His technique of micro-coiling is similar to early Indian “corrugated” pots although it comes from basket making.
