I remember feeling so happy as I watched children chase pigeons all around Venice. They were running around, laughing hysterically, staring in wonder, and curious to their core--their innocent beauty so obvious. I couldn't help but wonder "where does that innocence go?" As a 24 year old woman I wanted nothing more than to chase the pigeons around with them. My inner child tugged at my feet. So I lured a pigeon to land on my arm and it was the highlight of my day. It's the simple things. Listen to your inner child--they're really onto something.
I have just had a person ask about my ceramic pigeon pieces. I have made pieces involving pigeons and the environment for about six years. This photo is of a pigeon wearing a helmet and feathers scattered all around it. It is titled 'Sudden Impact'. I made it while in Ben Jackel's intermediate handbuilding class at CSULB a couple of years ago. #pigeons#pigeonart#claypigeons#ceramics#ceramicsculpture#ceramicart#helmetsafety
