Thirsty Tiger …In Everything Series
Ceramic (clay, underglaze, stains, glass, copper, beeswax), 36 x 23 x 23 inches, 2019
This piece is based on a childhood backpacking memory. I knelt with family, drank from a cool, clean Sierra stream & saw my first Tiger Lily. I was amazed! I was the Tiger Lily! I was the stream! My childhood face of awe peeks from a petal’s past in the sculpture. And in that past my daddy called me Tiger. There are three DNA helixes in this piece. Today we can’t drink from those streams. Tomorrow?
