That crowd of small statues, all with their own expressions, are they lares and panes, or unhappy lemures? Small spirits, primitive idols, medieval statuaries, or Viking warriors? Or simply cats and owls?
I like how the pit-firing process participates in the conversation: after a slow process of making and burnishing, white and smooth pieces are put in a pyre. After the firing, ancient artifacts bearing the shadows of smoke and the colors of minerals, are unearthed from the ashes.
If you are interested in a Small Spirit, please inquire!
