White Figures: I wandered along Lake Michigan, looking downward, beach all around me, seeing driftwood of all sorts; gathered them, bringing home to me to look and look.
To celebrate them and protect them--like humans protected. Into raw clay as of earth I stuffed them, simple, put latex, a skin over them, to protect and speak to vulnerability--a metaphor for life encased in tender skin. These I broke the surface slightly; wrapped some in twines; veined some with this rubber coating. Now they stand solid, yet free underneath suspended, made of authentic experience of human form, recreated as figures protected, yet intricately, of nature celebrated.
