made with: brass, clay, a ‘war on terrorism expeditionary medal’, sea shells, amy’s c.o.c ring, broken figurines, and a coyote penis bone.
story: made this in a sorta ritualistic way. thinking the entire time about my brother, who was gonna go back to the “sand box’ for a third time… this time it was to be afghanistan… and the entire time I played with the clay I thought “please don’t go”. funny thing, the day I called it quits on this was the same day derek got the news -he was rejected because of high cholesterol. the power of ‘art’!
be strong with your limp gun – be chicken and know when to run – be quick in the feet and mind rabbit…. please don’t die my brother derek.
