Sacajawea

Ideas for vessels often come from literature. Sacajawea is one of my favourite stories. It is an historical account about a heroic woman who played a pivotal role in the Lewis and Clark expedition. The part of her life I tried to capture was when she was called "Bird Woman".

The inside text from Anna Lee Waldo’s novel reads: "See the stones I made here are red, but not clear like your paints or the paintbrush flowers. See, there is a bird in them, raised up from the surface. I think it is trying to fly out."
