A Safe Place to Land

Ceramic Sculpture

Created by Cathy Broski
Two dogs lovingly nuzzle each other on a pillow carved with grass and leaves.

Each dog starts as a series of clay cones and cylinders. As they are assembled, the pose emerges. The surface is smoothed then textured. After the first firing, glaze is applied and then selectively wiped away to create a worn look. The pillow of grass is individually hand carved. These dogs are modeled after the artist's own beloved pet, Porter, who was rescued by her husband on Valentine's Day, 2005.

from the artist

I have always thought of my mom as healthy, almost invincible. So, it came as a surprise when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. Over the course of treatment, she at no time seemed down. I admire her for her courage and live my life with her as my role model in the face of adversity.
