Steel, Fabric, Soapstone    This project began with two recognizable children’s toys: a rubber duck and “Bug-Out Bob" which were then slightly melted and deformed using a torch. I then used these objects as models to carve soapstone representations. The resulting wonky, sad figures evoke sympathy, leading the viewer to identify with them and the forces being acted upon them in the supporting slings which precariously cradle them.
