Shapes can be expressive. Operating on this concept, I set out to explore the oval. The oval is a much calmer, serene shape than a square, rectangle or triangle.
The first piece looked like a rock...a beautiful rock, battered by wind and sea. The next vessel became sensuous and asked to be caressed. The following vessels demanded to be sea/land/sky-scapes, as this combination fit perfectly on the oval.
Hurricanes Irma and Maria on September 6 and 17, 2017 influenced the next two vessels. Perhaps the oval is not the perfect shape for post-hurricane sculpture, I pondered. But we are still a community, being reborn, like a phoenix, so the egg shape was right. The destruction is within the confines of the shape, and the suggestion of continuity exists in the oval.
