This sculpture manifested itself through a sculpting session with a live model. I made it while in a phase of letting animistic transformations emerge while sculpting someone. In this case, there was something very duck-like about this model, and the clay seemed to want to become that, in part. The closer likeness to the sitter's face is sculpted behind the duck woman.

I find it interesting to see what sorts of animals people resemble and consider the special characteristics of that animal and what we can learn from them. For example, a duck is a wonderful creature that can travel on land, in the water and in the sky, it has a versatile existence and has done very well adapting to the worlds changes.

This piece has many layers of imagery and stories. It will definitely spark some interesting conversations! It was just featured on Regretsy and received a lot of hilarious criticism.

This sculpture is made of recycled stoneware clay and is painted with underglaze and glaze. It is 9 inches tall by 14"x 12". It was fired to cone 6, so it will be suitable for indoors or outdoors (I envision it being an amazing addition to some sort of pond or water feature).

I made this piece at California College of the arts. At the time I was exploring themes ranging from environmentalism, shamanism, genetic engineering, wildlife habitat, and inter-species communication.

Certainly a one of a kind work of unique, whimsical, deep and thought provoking piece of art.
