Judy Kensley McKie (American, b. 1944). Large "Owl Vessel" in the form of an owl. Initialed, dated 2000, and numbered 3/16 along the underside of the top rim.

McKie began to hone her skills in the 1960s while in the cooperative workspace "New Hamburger Cabinet Works." While there she worked with other furniture makers such as Michael Hurwitz. In the 70s she began incorporating her own ideas and designs, usually inspired by animal and plant motifs. Though these designs started on flat surfaces she quickly moved on to structural and sculptural elements such as the lovely owl offered here. Her work has been exhibited at the American Craft Museum in New York City, the Pritam & Eames gallery, and the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco. Additionally, her works are also in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Height: 43 1/2 in x diameter: 13 1/2 in.
