This lady was one of the three sculptures first done of the newer, lower-fired clay I was experimenting with a couple years ago.   The voluminous sleeves indicate the (emotional) baggage we often carry with us when we approach a new situation.   At one time women used their baggy sleeves to carry essentials in, but with Approach, you have to wonder.....how essential are the contents of her baggage?

  1. This sculpture has such a capable and aware presence. My guess is that she keeps only a few sentimental mementos in her sleeves.
