New Sculpture

This is a new sculpture, fired clay with barbed wire and found wire, acrylic washes, paste wax finish. She'll be mounted on metal post to antique wood pedestal. This figure was loosely built by the Bruno Lucchesi coil method. Ever symbolic, the rusted barbed wire wings symbolize flight, spiritual growth, a sense of yearning. As ever, I find pure magic in the metaphysical.
"Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that's where I renew my springs that never dry up." ~Pearl Buck


  1. Starkly evocative. Whisper the right word, and she comes alive.

  2. Thanks, Crosby...I haven't named her yet, maybe we'll have to call her "Whisper"...hmmm.....
