Lullaby for Earth and Sky Opus 4
Childhood is in all of our histories and in our future and fates. This series expresses my sorrow and my hope for the world of our children. In the portrait, I am expressing the miracle that is life and its fragility and the sense of being imbued with a spirit or soul.
The form is drawn carefully from studying the skull and further shaped by the understanding of anatomy and individual character. The body surface mimics the history of land, marked by movements of tectonic plates, earth, water, and wind; the physical world to which we are inextricably woven. The clay was marked and thrown and shaped to be reminiscent of wings and of chrysalis and rebirth while maintaining the abstract surface.
