Lucy’s Secret

Lucy’s Secret
Lindsay Montgomery
Pressed Molded Earthenware
2007

When I was first looking through the gallery, this piece seemed sort of unremarkable. I didn’t think painting a pot was unnecessary. But as I passed again it, I found it more appealing, and the concept added more layers to the interpretations. The paintings on it were of wolfman, and on the other side a vampire. What is Lucy’s secret? Is it that she likes scary movies? Or is she the vampire on the other side of it? Even the pot itself is sort of spooky; it looks like an urn with a bat for a handle. The colors too were Halloween colored, with oranges, yellow, and dark blues.
