A Clever Retort

On this beautiful Saturday I saw this odd object out in the yard and grabbed my watercolors. Believe it or not, it is actually a retort for pyrolyzing wood into charcoal that my father built. I feel like this picture represents a synthesis between my father's creative drive as an engineer and mine as an imagemaker. Also, eccentric forms like this demand to be painted.
