Hip Hop Mimbres

I started playing with adding Hip Hop lyrics to Ancient Mimbres images in March of 2017. I had done a lot of work over Dec thru to January and was getting a sore back and neck and Khia's lyrics would pop in my head everytime I complained to myself and others and I'd crack up. What was even more perfect was the fact that I could scratch an actual crack onto the clay surface...yes literal, but I think culturally, Crees are quite literal in regards to language anyways. What has culminated is a greatly hilarious series. Bowl #1 - My Neck, My Back - Khia (2002)

Again, an ancient Mimbres image fused with Hip Hop text. I've worked with this image many a time and who would have thought adding lyrics by Biggie Smalls could have been such a perfect marriage. Biggie Smalls - Big Papa (1994)

This was one of the first in the series. Ancient Mimbres fused with hip hop lyrics. Silento - Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) 2015 This bowl has a mix of lyrics from the same song...each fit so well with the dancer, especially the exaggerated " Stanky Leg."

Fresh out of the kiln at the Shadbolt Centre and soon to be glazed. These were for a group exhibit in San Deigo entitled BC to BC.

The six that were included in the exhibit in San Diego. I work out of my apartment and the bowls tend to take up at least half of my floor space....the dust covers all of the livingroom...ugh...but I do a massive clean up after each series of work.
