The Figures series are representations of shells using a single coil. As the initiator of basic forms for communal gatherings (like cups, vases and plates), the coil materializes my vision of the simplified sculpture, the iconic object and as a symbol, the Caribbean souvenir in a non-satirical disposition. The shells also possess the qualities of being protective devices for either a living organism or a myth.
I tend to draw upon childhood memories and my religious upbringing for inspiration, as they are strongly embedded in the humanity of my expression. This particular display was inspired by church votive stands.
