Fragmented Male

I completed my second exploration into fragmented figures. This one, a male, got quite a bit bigger than I intended. I suppose I’ve gotten used to working close to life size. Instead of the more subtle surface treatment I did on the Fragmented Female, I opted for a bold, yet flat finish for this guy. I’m not sure what I think.

I’m still working with raw clay for these fragmented figures. I like the reference to impermanence and insignificance. On the other hand, I feel a little nagging inside me to fire one of them. Maybe the next one.
