Sculpting kids with Down Syndrome - DS Boy with basketball

I like to sculpt in quiet. It’s like a prayer or meditation for me. Just me and the work. When it’s quiet, there is no music or people talking and that’s when ideas and inspiration comes. Sometimes it’s like a whisper in the studio. “Sculpt me” it says. In this case the ‘me’ in question was a boy and girl with Down Syndrome. I just felt the need to sculpt two kids just enjoying their favorite activities. 

Hopefully someone will be walking through the show at the Loveland Sculpture in the Park August 11 and 12 and they will see a child that is like their child - and they’ll feel really good to see kids like their kids represented in sculpture. Here’s to all kids everywhere!

This original ceramic sculpture features a boy with down syndrome that loves to play basketball. Heavily grogged ceramic clay fired to cone 6. Next comes patina.
