Artwork Description

A figure inspired by the Irish legend, “The Fate of the Children of Lir.” The piece is just over 10” high. The figure is approximately 1/8th life sized (assuming Swan Maidens are of human stature). Medium: Kato Polyclay, wood, mohair, hand dyed silk. The underlying armature is gold-plated wire (verdigris free) and aluminum. She was sold under my eBay ID, ForestBeings.

I'm just wandering through internet looking for nothing in particular but i came across this gallery and some of your art and it's really impressive, the female figures are so fragile, delicate, there's some of "liquid" quality to them, hmm how to put it... I'm not good at handling words even in my native language so please forgive me my clumsy comment. all the best from Kasia (Poland)

Ohhh, wow. This is one of the most beautiful figures I have ever seen... not only is it technically exquisite, but empathically evocative as we see her fragile form weighed down by confusion and transformation. *Wow*, again.

Gorgeous work, Forest! I'm loving your entire gallery. This one in particular with the delicately molded wings , superb anatomy and dramatic pose. I have to compliment you on your "staging" too--very cinematic photography! Hope you'll return your selkie theme as well!
