"Lunar Movement is from a series I did in 1997-98," writes ceramist Andrea Gill, who teaches at the School of Art and Design at Alfred University. "My thoughts at the time were very much about dance, and the title refers to that, and perhaps to the Lunar Moth, in reference to the wings on the vase. I have been working for a long time on large vases covered with layers of color and pattern. It is a combination of my fascination with the vase as a form for exploration of volume, and my love of color, pattern and ceramic surfaces."
Gill's visionary work advances the great tradition of pottery found in many ancient and modern cultures.
