Over a century of healers grinding herbs with a pestle for traditional Chinese medicine smoothed the interior of this mid-19th century stone apothecary mortar. The ring around the top of the exterior was hand-carved to add a flourish, imitating the hoop of a barrel. At the gallery, we love the simplicity of doming moss in the recess and, suddenly, such a storied vessel begins a new chapter.
