"By burning my tusks (in the kilns) we have turned what would have been a very pricey, luxury item in the real world (ivory) into something very different, "Burnt Offerings."
"Burnt Offerings" has been accepted by Burning Man 2020 and they are granting us partial funding. We are asking for donations for the project's completion. Funds raised will be used solely for materials, transportation, and project support and supplies. Your donations are a gift, and tax deductible. You can find updates here, and additional media about the project on our web site .
"I started making tusk shapes and applying them to pots I was making in the 80s. I didn't really think much about the animal. I saw the tusks I was making as an architectural element only. After seeing them being stacked and burned in Africa on videos, I was moved to create this piece. I hope it moves others, too."
