Pen and Ink on slip cast form
Pen & Ink on slip cast form. The white ceramic form was found at a going-out-of-business sale at a plant nursery near Santa Ynez, California. After gessoing the form, I used pen and ink to draw the patterns. The patterns on the back side of the hand were inspired by a beautful, old cork tree on 12th and M in Eureka, California, which was killed and removed in 2019. My own palm was used as a model for the design of the palm of Workhand.
