Bright Ideas

Poland was great, and I would like to thank all of the symposium participants who for a short month became my good friends and family. I did not know what to expect, but I managed (with help) pretty well with the factories resources.
Each of the 26 completed Lenin busts are uniquely ornamented with factory decals, cutting them into tiny triangles and applying with tweezers. I began with the harlequin pattern, but like Lenin I began to deconstruct order and the pattern became more and more fractured.
Shown above is the work from the exhibition at the Walbrzych Museum, later this winter it will be traveling to the Ceramic and Glass gallery in Wroclaw, Poland.
