Tristan Meinecke's attraction to jazz well known -- He loved its embrace of improvisation and spontaneity. He was close with several notable jazz icons including Mr. Warren ":Baby" Dodds who is credited with inventing the modern style of Jazz drumming.

Mr. Dodds visited Meinecke's studio to "sit" for this bust. Regrettably, before the process was finished, he suffered a stroke which ultimately lead to his death in 1959. Tristan had completed much of the piece but only made an initial firing. It was never finished.

Genevieve Bowen, an expert ceramicist and long time friend who collaborated with Tristan in the 50's and 60's saw the unfinished bust. She decided to take on the project. Obviously she was successful. Her work stabilized the piece making it rock solid and easy to care for in the future. The Meinecke family is grateful for her efforts.
