Where the Light Gets In -New Ceramic Sculpture

So happy to be doing ceramics again after all these years. 
Mixing a bit of the abstract in with the practical.

This new piece is called "Where the Light Gets In". 
It's inspired by a variety of impressions; Leonard Cohen's song "Anthem", the Rumi quote " the wound is where the light enters", and a curiosity about a bird's experience upon making the crack to leave the egg...

The two separate pieces of the sculpture were made with impressions of real crow feathers.

The egg opens at the crack to hold a tiny light that shines from the inside outward.
