Things that go bump.....

This fall Vision Gallery is doing something a little different than usual.  Instead of having a Dia de los Muertos exhibit, the subject will be "Things that go bump in the night".  

So I thought I'd try my hand at something new to me:  handbuilt sculpture.  

When I was a child I was terrified of the critters under my bed.  So this is my version of that feeling in the greenware stage.  My buddy Steve made the big hand for me, and I did the little hand.  I've also made a ceramic rag rug to put under the bed, and I'm thinking of putting googly eyes in the cracks under the bed. Does anyone have a source for googly eyes that light up?  That would be even creepier, I think.  



  1. LOVE IT!!! I remember being very little and you calling out to Dad that there was a tiger in the room. I was pretty scared and buried my head in the covers. I remember that to this day!!!
