After making eight in this series, I think I'm done. (two are awaiting firing and not pictured here) For most of the past few months, it was impossible for me to do anything else and now my mind has moved on. I think it was part of exploring my roots in the Sacramento River Delta. I was writing down family history during this same period of time.  Now, every time I touch one of these pieces, I am reminded of foggy days and the tall silent trees of my childhood.

  1. I love the burnish (which makes it look oilish) look in contrast with the textured parts of the sculptures. It makes the figures very much alive. They are real! Fantastic works! Thank you Michele. Rachel.
