Have A Good Summer, You Crackpots!

Erin Nikiel, not satisfied with spending only a month designing and applying a Celtic knotwork sgraffito design onto a large bowl, decided to drop and break it into umpteen pieces the second after she finished carving it. Then she made an even better one. THEN she came back with her friend Chelsea the Mirthful Maniac to reassemble what was left of the first one.

Margaret Lee Cui

Untitled, 2009. Stoneware fired to cone 10, approximately 12" high.

Margaret's not even taking art right now - one of those geniuses too busy being smart and talented in a hundred other areas. But, when she finds time for art, it's worth showing.
