In One Basket

Eggs are an ongoing theme in my work. There is something unsettling in the question "which came first?". So, I use eggs to express some of these feelings of doubt. In this case, it's about risk and taking chances.

Is it a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket? I'll never know the answer to that one, just as I'll never know which came first. But I will keep blundering along - taking chances and wondering.

The mask is stoneware with mid-fire (cone 6) glazes and engobes with a final firing of gold lustre. The eggs in the basket are raku fired porcelain.
