New York, New York

This piece is going on its travels to its new home.

"Pregnant"  40x20x80cm wood and glass

The client came to the studio earlier this week and selected this piece for her New York City home.  I now need to pack it well and get the freight forwarder to deliver it safely.  I intend to use a lot of firm packing and a wooden box to help ensure its safe arrival.

This is a strip constructed piece.  The strips were cut and then formed.  These were then assembled and fused together.  Finally the piece was slumped over a special ceramic form created from a plow share.  This makes a connection for me between the growing of seed and the curves of a pregnant woman.  Both contain the developing form which will later appear.
