Change + Angel = Changel
The first picture is the original piece which I felt rather depressed about, so kitsch, so out of proportion, so undefined. So, I decided that before I bake her, I should take her apart, re-sculpt her, meaning take her clothes off, give her some more realistic features including actual elbows, knees, the cartoonish hands must become individual fingers, and toes, larger breasts, and a more protruding belly, she is not pregnant. The final result is a sculpture although masculine, is a feminine realization reminiscent of “The Thinker” by Auguste Rodin.



  1. This is a perfect example of why I am in love with your work! You have a way of portraying the female form that celebrates it without demanding that the form fit an idealized form. Your women are flawed and beautiful and real.

  2. found an image of an angel like figure by you, great work-you have inspired me to make a winged figure, maybe for the garden. But not really sure how I go about it, apart from needing an armature!
