This ceramic figure is a celebration of gratitude towards life. Peeking from a tiny grotto, a bird perches on a heart to symbolize a glimpse into the soul. Created from stoneware clay using wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques. Finished with black glaze.
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.
