The Struggles are sculptural ceramic figures created by infusing faux fur with porcelain slip, forming, then firing. Each figure embodies the acts of loss, transformation, and preservation in subject, concept, and material. Animals appear whole, or in part, and impersonate through guises or by employing disguises. Rabbits embody a vast array of symbols and possess the ability to pass between the real and imaginary while still remaining true to their chosen character.
