“Be careful what you ask for...."
We all know the rest of the story... "Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it." This ceramics piece is based The Old Man and the Sea, by American author Ernest Hemingway, written in 1951. In my more modern adaptation, this sculpture tells a similar story, the heart-shaped wound (accomplishments) symbolizes the desires of one's heart, inferring that oftentimes what you desire most; almost always comes with something unexpected (haters). This piece was constructed using the coil pot technique. It has 21 different glazes and was fired twice. With your support and generous donations, I would like to bring more classic novels to life in pottery.
