Another work of art dedicated to the debilitating autoimmune disease scleroderma.
One might think it strange to dedicate a work of art to the illness itself and not to say... my mother, but Its a personal narrative and the condition deserves respect and reverence as it is a force to be reckoned with. It is also my acceptance of it, not glorification.
And so as the figure hold her stone hands near her face, I just want to wisper to her, "its okay to show your hands."
Below from currently glaze ware, to bisque ware, to green ware.
