Eyes of Metal and Agate
Fall 2013.
Glazed porcelain.


      Ceramic creatures

      of liquid and bone stand motionless,

      guarding treasures

      of eras faded beyond recall.

      In those centuries

      predating

      the primacy of written language,

      the craftsmen

      were storytellers

      and the artists' painterly sleight of hand

      embellished

      the spoils of nature for all to gaze at

      and wonder.
