The Dobbs Decision

Porcelain Busts


These porcelain busts are about half life-size.  After taking some time off from my ceramic practice, I returned to it with new ideas and an open road ahead.

During that down time I investigated the construction of hollow figures using slabs. That resulted in a series of busts inspired by the strength of women. Having saved every plate I've ever broken, I finally found a use for them by incorporating the shards into the sculpture, creating a kind of dialog between the figures and the broken plates.
