Mica's journey through self discovery has been a long one. He just was not sure how he wanted to present himself to the world. He finally settled on a shiny, sparkly, and dazzling surface and does it ever suit him. He looks a deep black in one light, then in another you can see hues of brown, and yet another you will see hints of blue - and in all light you will see him sparkle.
This sculpture was initially made in a mold with soft clay, once it is together, the surface is altered, modeled, and sculpted to bring out its particular personality. The hand forged feet from a local blacksmith adds a depth to her personality that is truly unique. I try to make each one expressive and inviting.
