Out of the ashes: preservation at the edge of the world
pit-fired ceramic and bronze
She lays her head upon the soil, vulnerable in her pose of contemplation, shielded by her life-giving strength.

Out of the ashes: stillness before dawn
Back within the womb, like deep night in the long hours before sunrise.
