We have not had a piece from Preston with this particular lid before. This is a hand coiled tan seed bowl which is beautifully polished. Preston is also a jeweler, and he casts silver into ingots and then inlays them into his pottery. There is always such a nice contrast between the clay and the silver. The silver casting is textured – with ridges, which makes it even more prominent against the polished smooth finish of the seed bowl. The lid acts like a stopper, tightly fitting into the bowl. Preston calls this a “Chinese Coin” lid. As he explains, “It’s East (Chinese coin) meeting West (Hopi clay) It is a stunning creative, clay creation.
