By juxtaposing the materials, meaning, and the needs of humans, Dan Anderson’s work is a commentary on art and the human condition. This piece depicts the classic Popeye symbol placed on a Yunomi teacup. It embraces the irony between the style of teacup and the history imbued in the classic comic strip character. This contemporary and functional piece of stoneware was created with a shino glaze, and both wood fired, and decal fired. It measures 3″x4″x4″.
