My grandmother's porcelain work -- today unpacking her studio from its pallet. Two boxes are full of tiny arms, hands, fingers. Unfired, the texture of chalk, some fingers break as I unwrap them from lightly perfumed tissue that reminds me of the scent of her bathroom. What do I do with these? Fire up the kiln, resurrect the molds, crack open the tool box and revive them, starting with a few dozen hands.
