Four personalized bowls and wheel thrown stoneware canister. Lid reads "The Life Worth Living Is..." Inside reads "Unexaminable". Metal rimmed glass lens covers hole in lid slightly magnifying the "Unexaminable". Slip trailed surface texture with stoneware screw heads.

Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche and Gilles Deleuze's inversion of Platonic theory, I created this piece inverting Socrate's "The unexamined life is not worth living."

Of course, you can put anything you want in the canister and change it: "The life worth living is...full of chocolate covered cherries", "The life worth living is...full of used electronic parts" and so on.

Black, white and gray. Multiple firings give the piece an antique look.

4"/10cm tall
5 1/2"/14cm diameter
16oz/550ml capacity

All of my ceramic pieces are wheel thrown and/or hand crafted, signed and numbered. I use only commercial food grade glazes so all work is food safe. This canister should be hand washed and shouldn't be used in a microwave.

Meticulously packaged then shipped USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and insurance. First Class International.
