My new work continues with the same theme.
I am fascinated with the idea of many people standing shoulder to shoulder, going round and round a pot. Mostly I imagine them on a taller skinner pot. A pot that doesn't allow for a continuous story to be seen and told.
There are many reasons that I like this image. The first is easy. When you have a skinny taller piece where you can't tell a cohesive story, taller thinner objects compliment the form. The second is that the stretched human form is fun to carve. Especially the feet and hands. So though I know I need to move on to a different image, I am still carving people. Round and round I go.
I did manage to convince myself to think about spring and the idea of swinging. I adore swinging and can't wait for it to be warm so I can go swing in the park.
