Reinterpreted in Peruvian porcelain from the Igorot tribe in the Northern Philippines, this ancient form was used to grind grain during the harvest. Assisted by Aid to Artisans and funded by USAID money, Tucker helped found the porcelain workshop that produces his pieces as a way to give the people of Peru meaningful, fulfilling jobs to dispel the strife of civil war.
