If that is the case, optimism can be recognized in its message. Beauty is assigned to what would have otherwise been thrown away.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIt's likely the layered effect is meant to mimic shoreline imagery associated with nature in the state of Maine. To achieve this result, various clay bodies and glazes were packed with paper, which burned away when the sculpture was fired in a kiln.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe center of this piece exhibits a highly textured and sharp cluster of material, which is similar to the effect of another series completed by the artist called \"Midden Series.\" Shell middens, which are old refuse piles of discarded mollusk shells, are found all over the world in coastal zones.
