This was created by joining two simple pinch-pots and affixing many different accessories from the inside of the sphere. The piece is supposed to represent a figure escaping from an outer entity or material. The real question is whether or not the eye is part of the outer shell, or rather, the inner entity, that is completely up to interpretation and could change the meaning from that of an escape, to that of a destruction of the outer entity from the hand inside.
