The photo above is a unique mixed media sculpture. Drawn from both my connection to home and my heritage. I sculpted the face in porcelain clay and finished it with an iron-rust patina. The driftwood body was washed up with other debris, along a Lake Michigan beach. The final assemblage was inspired by a Ukrainian Folktale Rusalka. These mythological women seen haunting lakes are reminiscent of Hans Christian Andersen’s “Little Mermaid,” yet much darker.
