Fledgling (Young Boy with Toy)
This body of work, “Fledglings”, explores childhood. I have always been intrigued by children’s unique expressions and perspectives on life. For “Fledglings”, I have sculpted a number of children in ceramics. They are rendered without heads or limbs: their physical forms fill out the clothes they wear. Each sculpture represents a unique child. Their clothes and body language reflect their individual personalities. The children are grouped in pairs, revealing a range of possible dynamics in relationships between children.
