Kristen Woodward, 

Thank you for your remarks! I appreciate it very much!

The porcelain bowl is indeed a figure enveloped by the bowl. I will upload additional photos. 

The form "Hips" is a style of expressive figurative sculpture that I recently discovered, and I am pursuing! I am currently in the process of casting forms such as this in Bronze, Aluminum, and Copper. I will post those as soon as they are finished.  

Again, thank you for your remarks, they are very encouraging.

Curator’s Comment:


There’s an impressive range and level of accomplishment in academic approaches to multiple two and three dimensional media in your portfolio.  But I’m most drawn to the sculptural Hips.  The unadorned economy of form remains sensuous and even voluptuous – a rhythmic pairing of figurative planes that leaves an interstice with strong positive/negative spatial interaction.  I see the composite object as decidedly feminine with softened curves, but the roughness of the texture stops my eyes from moving too quickly across the surface.  While you’ve indicated this is a plaster life cast, the white material and “slab” construction looks more like ceramic porcelain.  Indeed, the previous clay bowl glows bone white, and its austerity of form is also counterbalanced and accentuated by more organic embellishment.  I can’t quite ascertain if the small object flowing over the vessel edge is a figure or a liquid source.  The pooling of (brownish violet) color in the bottom remains somewhat separate in terms of color instead than melting into the pale blue glaze, which supports the interpretation of a disparate entity rather than alchemical transformation.
