"I began cutting away holes in a traditional pot to see how far I could push the limits of the pot"
Inspired in part by famed Pueblo potter Maria Martinez, Hubert Candelario experiments with new forms and tools. This unusual pot with perforated walls developed out of the artist's interest in the structural properties of clay. This jar is a stunning example of his vision.
