I love their promotional postcard, don't you?!!?!?

My piece in this show is "Naturally Endowed," the largest of my clayfoot girls. Her face and feet are hand-sculpted of stoneware clay and have a unique "separating glaze" on them that has a sharply "crackled" texture. Her body is completely woven, and is comprised of over 500 stakes. She required over 100 hours to weave; that is, after hand forming the face, feet and armature. Woven of wire, waxed linen, and fashion (acrylic) yarns. I particularly love her scaly skin, and her cellulite.

Please see my facebook fan page or the Textile Center's Facebook Page for more information about the exhibition!
