Hello, Goodbye, 2007
Ceramic sculpture
Stoneware clay - Raku, collection of 15 tubes
20”H x 26”W x 16”D
Is this Hello or is it Goodbye? I find children to be most inquisitive; the first ones  to investigate a new addition to their group, and more often than not, the last ones to say goodbye to a loved one leaving them.
The more I look at these tube forms, the more i see the personality in each of them. The stoic grand parents in the background, the more accepting younger generation in the middle, and the little ones right up close and leaning towards the new stranger in red.
Are the 2 red personalities on the left introducing the new comer, or are they waiting for him/her to say his/her goodbyes. It’s all up to us how we see the story plays out.
