The fingers on this hand have a secret message reading "Trying Harder Every Day" along with cobalt blue feathered design, a bright red line across top, and knuckles and nail texture.
Size of my actual hand. Glazed kiln-fired porcelain. Hole at top for hanging from a nail or cord.
This hand was part of a portrait project and on the back says 2015 Philadelphia Portrait Project
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.
