In the studio with three hands, inspired by a photo my friend Pam Posey posted ages ago. Sculpting the hands separately before attaching them to the arms.

“You will always hesitate”

I reinstalled this in my home studio in preparation for a few visits.  It took ages to make and I learned a lot about logistics in its construction.  I get a little thrill of pride when I see it up.

Cold little foot, toes curled in.

I just made a sodium alginate mold from this polymer clay form, and cast two wax duplicates. Usually, I make the original in wax, but I’m trying to build in more fail safes in case the final casting goes bad.

I need several wooden dollhouses for an installation piece. And so, I solicit dollhouse donations.

If you have one, I will trade you a unique monoprint of the dollhouse and send updates of the sculpture you helped make happen.
