Gas can vessel

Environmental activism and traditional pottery come together in this work by Rick Dillingham. A severe oil spill in Santa Barbara in 1969 helped to set his course away from the trappings of modernity, and toward ways of living that seemed to him both older and wiser. Dillingham went on to make a deep study of Pueblo Indians, particularly their pottery traditions, publishing influential books on the topic and incorporating the insights he gained into his own work.
