New Work: Sculpture In Progress
Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass. ~ Dogen
This piece is fired terra cotta, with multiple paint layers and distressed finishes. He sat untouched for several months, until today when I picked him up, got the brush out, and started applying acrylic paints like glazes. I like this guy!
