The first hand! The original. Becoming + Forming. Blue, white, brown, and robin's egg glazes in overlapping patterns with finger and nail texture.
Size of my actual hand. Glazed kiln-fired porcelain. Hole at top for hanging from a nail or cord.
This is part of a series I made during 2014-15 about hands, magic, transformation, portraiture, and touch. Gemly is my universe-hopping magical alter-ego who did a residency on Earth from 2012-2015 and her signature is on the back.
