Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

Tiny Head Sculpture

I’m hoping to eventually get back to writing. For now I thought I’d post this “sort of” tiny head in response to the “weekly photo challenge.”  I’m not sure what I will do with this budding character. Sometimes it’s just about the simple pleasure of pushing my thumbs across that smooth porcelain clay and unearthing a “being,” just beneath the surface. If I drew, you could consider this the equivalent of a doodle.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
