‘Pheasant’ Ceramic sculpture with glazes and bronze effect finish 14″ x 5″ (36cm X 14cm)
All together now…
I was playing with the concept of multiple realities when working with these sculptures. I was examining the shamanic idea of inviting benevolent spirits or power animals into your mind and being, to bring help, healing and guidance.
They look quite fierce, and there was a lot of strong emotions involved during their creation, but I must admit I have had a whale of a time. Saying that, I spent most of the spring and summer in my bed or on the floor with a really bad back. So they took a long time coming, and now they are here I’m not sure what the next step is going to be; I had intended them for an exhibition in London, but they may well be too strange.
I can’t help laughing at the contrariness of life; these guys helped me through a really dire period; but they creep people out.
Hmm. Back to the drawing board.
