Renwick Featured Object--"Orange Swirl" (ceramic by Neil Tetowski)

November 4, 1987 – April 15, 1988

Museum: Renwick Gallery

Location: Near Front Entrance, 1st Floor

This large-scale (150 pound) wall-mounted disc features a broad rim, scribed with a series of parallel lines. Its restricted color palette--orange, white, yellow and dark brown--and the wet, fresh appearance enhance a texturally rich surface.
