Just got an announcement for a new show at Campbell Pottery in April! It will be titled " On the Farm"and will benefit some local 4-H programs! One possible entry I am working on is this gourd sculpture of a pig! I am thinking she will be an abstract pig of many colors but we shall see how it progresses! Pigs hold a special place in my heart as we had a pot belly pig when my kids were smaller and loved her until she passed away at age 10!
This completed project is made from a gourd piece that was carved and painted and coiled with pine needles and then a chain. After that it was mounted on an art board which was painted in a dot style. It is titled "connected" and is my way of expressing how creatures on this earth are connected and what happens to one interacts with all of life on this planet!! I so wish we would be more mindful of that and take better care of this planet!! I recently have found out we will be grandparents and it
is more important to me than ever that these creatures are around in the future!!
