The Reason

I have finished the clay piece, The Reason, based upon the well know poem by an anonymous writer. The piece was partly inspired by seeing the play Beauty and the Beast and the opportunity to see the elaborate costumes up close in a back stage visit. Thanks Rebecca.

The piece is made up of three individual pieces each representing part of the poem, The Reason, The Season and the Lifetime. The sculptures create hearts at the openings at the top and all three intertwined also create heart shapes.

It will be exhibited May 5-16, 2014 at the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery on the University of Saskatchewan Campus.
