My slab animal sculptures began with me looking at the animals I had at home, which at the time were my family’s cats. I was still fairly new to ceramics at the time and just wanted to simplify delineate the form into a minimal figure. That attempt had failures and successes. Then after a short break from ceramics and the introduction of a pet rabbit to my life my sculptures began to evolve. This group is comprised of the first ceramic rabbit pieces I made.
