Stubbed Toe by Bruce Armitage
Clay is such a versatile medium. It starts out soft and malleable but through exposure to high heat it becomes hard as stone. In this piece I deconstructed the human form in an attempt to capture a gesture with a shape that reads "figurative" without being too literal. My hope was to create an interesting silhouette that would lead the viewer to take a closer look.
