JIM BARNABY / NORTHEAST BAY / DAIRY COW / INSTITUTE (printed on underside in block letters)

Sculpture of 4 whole and 1 half porcelain ceramic cows (two brown and three black) on an artificial dirt surface that covers a pink plastic base. Coloration of cows was done in colored pencil prior to glazing. The cut-off section of the half cow has a scene depicting sheep in a pasture. In the background is a large dome with an image of a cow's face and clouds in the background on one side and a close-up of cow utters on the other. There is a chrome colored pipe (smoke stack? milk can?) extending up from the center of the dome with a white cylinder of clay (milk?) coming out the top. An additional projection on the chrome colored piece is for mounting a black rubber tube with a dot of pearlescent white clay at one end (piece currently broken and loose). Beneath where the tube would be mounted between the two cows in the foreground is a puddle of pearlescent white glaze.
