That Day


This piece reflects on some of the relationship-layers in the new millennium. I look at the dynamics of the mother-daughter unit in response to societal influences. There are always new trends popping up in the evolution of  ideas, and these have a say in shaping the future. However, there is a significant risk in change, due to its untested nature. Surely, a calculated risk is usually part of the equation, but it seems to me it is foolish if not dangerous to do away with the accumulated wisdom of the past to chase Utopian social constructs that defy nature, reality and logic.  Failed social experiments can cause serious damage in future generations. Good intentions are not enough, we owe it to our children to make sure we lead them towards a reality-based future.

More bird (madár) sculptures


I almost forgot to post the rest of my madár sculptures. In fact, there may be more coming as I am preparing for a workshop in the fall. I made these sculptures with a different technique, the traditional layered paper mache strips.  I like the results and am already incorporating the (to me) new method into the pulped paper sculpting. It will particularly be useful for delicate detail that might be prone to breaking otherwise.
