The spiral is a version of the universal theme of infinity. Like the ever expanding rings of a tree, the spiral symbolizes continual growth and the cycling of the seasons. Each turn of the spiral returns to its origin, while continuing to progress outward as it develops toward maturity. Also a powerful female symbol, the spiral suggests fertility and the womb. Made from glazed red earthenware clay, the back of this limited edition piece displays the artist's signature stamp and the LQP chop mark. Left to right, 1 1/2 high, 1 5/8", 1".
