Recently I created work for Union College, NY on a joint project with several professors. They excavated clay credited to be over 10,000 years old, and requested I create ceramic works that represented work produced in New York during that glacial period. I created four pieces of work. One piece was a sculpture representing the Venus Figurine from Dolni Vestonice, now the Czech Republic, which actually dated 27,000 years ago, produced in the first discovered kiln site known to humankind. I chose to start with this ceremonial piece as it represented artwork that could have been made in any prehistoric society. I then produced two small pinch pots, the first kind of bowls made by human hands, and then one coil pot, representing pottery that was made for storing foodstuffs and later on, cooking. Along with the artwork, I contributed historical documentation referring to these pieces of clay. The exhibit is on permanent display on the third floor of the Olin Building, Union College, Union Street, Schenectady, NY, 12308-3107. I hope you get to see the exhibit.
