I never actually plan my pieces. I let the clay tell me what to do. Most pieces end up with patterns of alternating chatter marks and dots. As my middle name is Argus, I realized that I am adding the mythical of my namesake into my pieces. I also have discovered the Great Argus Pheasant and how this bird creates its feather patterns with the same “eyes”. This “Argus Eyes” vase and the Great Argus Pheasant feathers are a perfect pair. This piece is a perfect compliment of each other and who we are.
