For three decades a professor at RIT’s School for American Crafts, Richard Hirsch is one of the acknowledged masters of contemporary ceramic art. His own collection of Asian ritual containers and stone tools inspired the series from which this piece comes. The forms hint at ritual sacrifice or other kinds of human ceremonies, while the surfaces allude to ancient weathered stone and bronze.
