The Odyssey Series is composed of ten lidded containers based loosely on Homers epic poem. The story parallels Odysseus voyage but does not attempt to duplicate it. Homers original epic poem inspired me but the journey described in these enameled vessels and the poems imprinted inside are my own.
It seems as though the very sun has cursed us. We halted here to rest and reconnoiter Upon these pastoral verdant slopes Where gentle sheep and cattle grazed. I warned my mates to leave the livestock alone No matter how hungry we all were. But no sooner had I left to seek out higher ground Than they killed a calf and consumed it. The retribution, I fear, will be swift and harsh.
