An early piece by Michael, this bottle is expertly wheel thrown and trimmed, then fired in a high temperature salt kiln. The layered glazes react to the turbulent atmosphere in the kiln in. In the semi gloss surface.
It is well made and feels comfortable and. The artist expertly marries Japanese. Clearly marked with the artist's signature. At the heart of his interest is the intersection of where humans and materials meet in both handmade objects and the natural world. Michaels work is in several public collections including the Smithsonians Renwick Museum of American Craft, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Mint Museum, the Museum of Art and Design, Corning Museum of Glass, and Takoma Glass Museum, among others.
In 1993, the Year of Craft, Michael was selected for the White House collection, which traveled to venues around the United States. His piece, Incandescent Bottles, now resides in the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum.
