Pyxides, to go…

23 September 2008

I have recently had some fun with a small series of wood-fired pyxides (singular pyxis, from Greek and Roman antiquity—“a box for storage of personal items, usually cylindrical in shape and having a lid with a knob in the center…”), all 80mm to 90mm tall. My boyfriend jokingly refers to them as “budgie urns,” a name that seems to have stuck with Cheryl, owner of the Fishfly Gallery here in Winnipeg Beach (where my pyxides are now demurely on display).
