THE UNFOLDING

“THE UNFOLDING”
The Unfolding Stoneware Clay Sculpture
When I created this particular stoneware clay sculpture, spring was on my mind. I thought about the plants and trees and how the leaves seem to unfurl and stretch from a long winter. The bright verdant green underbrush creates a backdrop for spectacular flowers that begin to materialize out of nowhere. And so it is with all of life. We stay cocooned in our inner sanctuary until the time comes for a change. Here is the story I wrote for my sculpture. It seems fitting.
THE UNFOLDING
So long in the cocoon..and now she was free..free to fly..fly away.because they had been called to the world and she had been called …to herself.

The Unfolding is similar to the sculpture we will be creating in my sculpture class this summer. Of course, she will be nude since we will be working from live models. If anyone is interested in taking an all inclusive sculpture class, where we will be studying the face and figure, please view details at my website located here You can also e-mail me if you are interested in the class or sculpture.

  1. Wow, she is amazing. I love how you have captured so much texture in this piece. I think the fact she is covered rather than nude, sets her apart. What an awesome piece. Goodness, what you do with clay!!

  7. She is really beautiful and does seem to be unfolding from the earth.

    She probably smelt the cauliflower cooking in your previous post!

  10. She is not only exquisitely beautiful, she inspired me to unfold a bit myself … I stretched, arched and breathed deep. She is "good" Medicine.

    And gee … would I love to join a class of yours … one day. One day.
