This hand built wall sculpture looks into issues of identifying with the body, and beginning to find an emptiness in the form. The piece consists of a slightly smaller than life size head and shoulders looking one way, a small figure sitting on her shoulder looking the other way, and an even smaller figure on her flowing hair, peering into a dark opening. I think of them as levels of awareness.

On the main level there is the outer appearance, on a subtler level (in this case) a confident self image of the body, and on an even subtler level, that little voice that fearlessly explores the empty nature of identifying with the impermanent. The first two levels seem to be looking around for fulfillment, while a smaller part is quietly searching the void.

It seems most common to look outwards for a sense of satisfaction, yet it seems to me that true enrichment is gained from understanding what we experience inwardly. This piece shows a person who is just starting to understand this.

The open landscape gives her a serene space to contemplate.

It is approximately 18 inches tall, by 14 inches wide by 6 inches deep. It has a ledge on the back that mounts on a wooden cleat that screws into the wall with 2 screws. It is very sturdy on the wall. It is made of recycled stoneware clay, fired to cone 6, painted with underglaze, glaze, and oil paint. The painting is done on thick layers of paint that were peeled off of a graffiti wall. This piece is part of the Relics & Debris series displayed at 1530 in Seattle.

A beautiful piece of ceramic sculpture with a thought provoking depth and narrative.
