The three curving lines on this lamp are in reference to the translation of Terlingua itself… Three tongues.  It is not know if this is from the three forks in the Terlingua creek leading to the Rio Grande or if it represents the three languages spoken by the native people of this land.  Wild clay, harvested from the Terlingua creek, was used to give the sweeping lines a matte but warm color.  The carved lines are also filled with metallic glaze in a nod to the mercury mines that put Terlingua on the map at the turn of the last century. 


This lamp is part of a series that was dreamt up while participating in an artist residency at Willow House  in Terlingua, Texas.
