Write up in the Grand Rapids Press by Joseph Becherer, Chief Curator of the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

"Quite unique from among any of the aforementioned is New York-based Amanda Katz's "Vessel." The work integrates the author's interest in art and art history, poetry and text. A poem is delineated in rows across the surface of the work in hundreds of cut letters. They are arranged with logic and precision in rows along long, stacked, horizontal lines. Letters and structure form a lattice work that is open to the elements. Although the overall tubular shape suggests containment, the actual form is in opposition, favoring light and air and openness."
