Ceramics and agriculture share a connection that’s lasted more than 10,000 years. As I begin my 25th year working in clay, it’d be difficult to think of a more meaningful way to celebrate our human need for both food and expression than creating work for The Art of Real Food project. Anthony Maki Gill, sculptor.
My gratitude and appreciation go to the farmers who let me wander their fields. They generously shared their produce at its peak in the dirt, on the tree or in the fields, which made this project possible. Paula Amerine, illustrator.
