The Way Things Work

I use the things that I come across.... nuts, wires, hubcaps. T ake things and turn them around and let them suggest faces, characters, moments in time. This one happened when I came across this "Scales of Justice" tie tack.
It kind of looks like a Bandit's mask (if you look at it just right). I didn't really know what the mood of the piece was going to be until I put the little beads in to make the eyes. with just a little adjustment in the angle, the face went from deadpan and emotionless to terrified! A simple cut into the clay to make the quivering lip and I had the moment when it was time to face the music!

"The Way Things Work" is available in my Etsy store.
