We all have two ears, two eyes, a nose, and a mouth, and yet no two human are alike, not even twins. There are an endless combination of these elements. I marvel at how different we are, how genetics reappear in the next generation with slight variations. How does one piece go with another? Are the eyes the same height? the ears? My childhood doctor once told me that no body part is exactly like the one on the other side and I was very relieved, although I wondered why not. I started looking at faces, long before I knew that I would get my hands into clay to recreate those differences.
The human face is a mirror of who we are, of our parents and our history. I want to capture all of that information in sculpture and invite the viewer to know that person.
