lame rat revisited

Finishing the quarter, I have been telling the students to re-visit their work. I realize I should practice what I teach and have dusted off pieces made last fall to re-examine. Here is the lame rat, now with daffodils. I replaced the skeletal porcelain branches with one of the earliest blooming plants. The sculpture now works as a vase, hinting towards mourning, and rebirth. Click here to see the previous version.
