48" x 60" - Oil on Canvas

I was traveling in Peru and was fortunate enough to visit an artist's studio. The artist made amazing clay pots. Besides the amazing paint work on the pots, I was also taken by the imperfect shapes. The artist seemed unconcerned with making the perfect pot which gave each pot character, uniqueness, and a feeling of freedom. These pots inspired me to paint this painting.
