I created these ceramics for a final project, entitled, "Pieces of my Mother," at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Detail of the thumb with warts. I used to have terrible warts on my hands growing up (so did my mother).
Detail of Surgery. My mother had the lower section of her femur removed and replaced with a cadaver's bone due to damage she'd done to her knees playing sports.
Detail of Ringneck Snakes. As a kid, I was in love with ringneck snakes, which are fairly common in Oklahoma. My brother and I would hunt for them by pushing over fallen logs or railroad ties.
