Item Description

"Ceramic Cod" by Kirsten Bassion

Medium: tbd

Size: 19" x 8"

Artist Statement:

As an artist who works in clay and who mainly focuses on functional work for the dining table or kitchen it is always fun to get out of my routine and to make a codfish for this auction to support the Marblehead Festival of Arts I have been showing work in this festival since I was a child growing up here in town. And a few years ago I was even one of the judges
