Vertices Vortices
2001, ceramic
40-50 units, 8-14" high

Created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Archie Bray Foundation these ceramic dervishes balance atop kilns, buildings and 50’ high brick chimneys. Their implied spinning motion and dramatic locations enliven several acres of ABF skyline.
