Goals

This was a piece made specifically for Burning Man 2016, and the winner of a Honoraria Grant Award through the Burning Man Foundation. We strive to create pieces that bring visions to life, and have been very successful in doing so with this massive, interactive piece.

Process

This piece was created with the designer and artist (Peter Hazel) and a team of volunteers and ceramic arts specialists over a period of six months of work and collaboration.
