"Musical Mind", Ceramic Sculpture, 2008
For years I created figurative works without heads. The open "vessel-ness" of them was too important to the work for me to close them, and I did not want them to read as statues, which seemed too provincial for the feeling I was going for. When I first began to make heads, I had them stand alone, though still left their tops open, maintaining their importance as vessels.
