Neenah Foundry Vase
Hand built slab vase, soda fired cone 10
8 x 2 x 12
Neenah Foundry Vase is made with an impression of a cast iron drainage grate from the Neenah Foundry, the largest independent foundry in the US, located in Neenah, WI, with a history stretching back more than 125 years. I make my impressions on site at the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston IL, then reassemble back at the studio. I am a former resident of Somerville, now relocated to the Midwest.
