Ceramic arms, legs, and head with blue-black sigilatta.  The tail is posable due to wire armature.  


Ceramic legs and head with burnished sigilatta.  Back zips open to reveal sewn junk food (pizza, ice cream, cake, hamburger, and doughnut). 


Figure sculpted solid during two class sessions with a live model.  Hollowed out, given texture, and branches (which can be removed for easier transportation).  

This piece was glazed with the same glazes as the hand (Adrian Arleo glazes from the Lark figures book) but fired in oxidation.  


from a continuing studies class at MICA, Spring 2009.  Instructor was the wonderful Trisha Kyner.  

Hand is a little larger than life-size.
