Myths

Myths are glazed stoneware torso figures with references to Greek mythology. Their enduring tales inspire the arts and even infiltrate pathology, as Narcissism from Narcissus. The paper-like “Echo and Narcissus” sculptures are reflected in their mirror bases. In Ovid’s account, Echo falls in love with Narcissus who doesn’t notice her. While Echo’s body withers away until only her voice is left, Narcissus falls in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Slabs of clay are formed, bisque-fired, then sprayed with layers of glazes. “Antigone” is built in multiple parts and minimally glazed in brown. In the Greek myth, she is the daughter born of the unwittingly incestuous union of Oedipus and his mother, Jocasta.
