This particular sculpture is carved to resemble a human ribcage and form, finished perfectly, smoothed and sanded. Skeletons of humans and reptiles started showing up in my work from the very beginning. The natural, unfinished porcelain is sanded by hand to a smooth finish that reminds me of bone, and the translucent qualities of the thinned porcelain give the illusion of transparent skin when held to light. It's a fascination with the beautiful; it's about evolution. And skeletons and bones are gorgeous architectural and engineering feats.
