Frans Wildenhain was a distinguished professor of ceramics at Rochester Institute of Technology. In this beautiful piece, he alludes to the classical myth of Daphne, who was pursued by the god Apollo. She appealed for help and was turned into a laurel tree. Wildenhain expresses the transformation by the gradual plainness of the body of the pot turning into stylized, glazed vegetative forms.
