Description: Balance (Times Roman) is another in my series of ceramic figurines that are composed of cast parts that are cartoon-like representation of my own form, and are manipulated to display or embody some kind of industrial element. In this case the elements are from typeface forms and Home Depot wood finials. The found parts recombine to playfully suggest porcelain dolls, 19th century American classical revival architecture (still present in the vernacular landscape) and ancient terra cotta figurines.
