all the birds...


i finally got all of my birds ready for bisque and loaded into the kiln yesterday...this includes the 33 i did for the victims of the el paso and dayton shootings...i really did process a lot of anger and grief moving through that work, and the final bird i created is a testament to the transformative potential of art to create beauty out of ugliness, even something as ugly as grief...i do keep thinking about these families who now have this pain and this wound in their life, and what i can do as an artist to move people toward positive action...the funny thing to me about all of this is that i began these birds inspired by a dream and they initially brought me so much joy and i loved there goofy charm...and so they arrive at grace. thank you, my loveđź’›
