illustrated on pg 77 in Come Walk With Me: A Luke Lindoe Retrospective, published by Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery, 1992; "this is one of the earliest uses of the vertical fish design. I synthesize those fishes even further later, but I still like them stay fishes, so we run into them every once in a while in my work. I like them. They fit pots; they belong on pots.'
