Seed

Daniel Ingersoll

“As a potter, my work has always had a strong connection to the earth. Earth and seeds are symbiotic. Seed analogies are abundant and redundant. I don’t care about them. The Black Locust trees in my back wood lot shed their seed pods each spring. I pick them up, look at them, feel the pregnant bumps then peel them open and examine their cords and nests and spine. I make a collection seeking a pod of 8 like my family of origin. I draw them and shape them in clay. My story lies in this connection to the earth and the seed. It feels like it is a part of me that is too often lost. A part that must be found in quiet contemplation.”
