"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. [Gallery label text]", "Dedication" : "Maurice R. and Maxine B.

Engobe is a more correct term for what I usually call slip. Slip is a very generic term for any liquid clay...engobe (I think it is French) is the word used for slip that is used for surface decoration. Earthenware is clay that is not vitrified, and is fired to a lower temperature (about 1900 deg. F.) "Lunar Movement" is from a series I did in 1997-98.

I have been working fora long time on large vases covered with layers of color and pattern.
