American ceramic art exploded with this extension of what DeVore found in clay. The "double break-away" that resembled the human body, sexual identity and explored the physical relationship of ceramics and human. No one had ever done this concept in clay and DeVore is revered for his exploration of the subtleties of how ceramics and humanity could be contained in a ceramic vessel. This is an excellent example of one of the most extraordinary artists of our time.
