Snug Harbor Retort Canners

Snug Harbor Cannery Retorts by Jill Randall

Snug Harbor Cannery stopped canning salmon about 40 years ago. These retorts are huge canners that have always fascinated me. I wanted to abstract the color and some shapes in order to capture my emotional response to these huge canners. They are giants compared to my canner which only holds 14 pint jars of salmon.
