Gift of the Nora Eccles Treadwell Foundation

An innovator in the field of ceramic arts, Wayne Higby is famous for his imagery of American landscapes ranging from vessel forms and sculptures to architectural installations. Since the 1970s, he has experimented with forms and surface decoration to depict panoramic vistas, particularly those of the western U.S. In this piece, Higby captures the colored rock formations and mountainous terrain of Rainbow Canyon, a deep canyon just south of Caliente in Nevada.
