My work at a local silent auction

coffemakerThis Saturday, at the Field House at the College of Saint Benedict’s, the All Saints Academy of St Cloud is putting on their annual fundraiser, called the Extravaganza.  In gratitiude for the school donating an electric kiln to our project, I have given them a piece of pottery for the silent auction at the event.  It is a Melitta- style coffeemaker that I made this fall, with the top designed to hold a cone-shaped paper coffee filter.  The bottom could also be used by itself as a pitcher. The carving on the pot depicts three women in a garden tending corn, squash, and beans.  It is meant to be a visual pun of sorts.  The American Indians raised these three crops for thousands of years, planting them in groupings and calling them the Three Sisters, which is what I call this piece.
