As a sculptor, I believe in making art that allows us to think about deep conceptual ideas on an accessible daily level. Great ideas come to all of us without time and place restrictions. The reception of someone else's idea should be given as fluid and serendipitous considerations.
The embedded fetus is made from goat's milk soap. The outer embryonic sac portion is made of melt and pour clear glycerin soap.
Each soap is created one at a time using a fetus mold made by yours truly. Casting mimics gestation and birthing with its long production process and patience in curing.
At 12 - 13 weeks, the fetus is averaged to be around 2.5 inches, which is the size of the fetus in this soap - we were all this size once.
An original was sculpted then a mold was made out of silicone. The excess pour spouts and other mold-making demarcations have carefully been removed so that each soap is like a scientific specimen.
All soaps are handmade one set at a time. Weight and color may vary slightly.
As of January 2013, the packaging of these soaps will be as shown in the fourth photo. The outer-most layer during ship is a gold parchment paper.
