Description

In his ceramic work, Ken Price animates and eroticizes vessel and cup forms. His surreal creations call attention to the sensual aspects of drinking—the gesture of hand to mouth, the act of swallowing. Here, a single image of one of Price’s creatures/cups occupies an otherwise abandoned interior.
