Red brick, mortar, fabricated steel, patina, and adobe stucco
This work was specific for a Washington Sculptors Group show at the Workhouse Arts Center in Virginia. The application called for works about the history of the site, a former prison. After some research I found that the original prisoners built a kiln on site to fire the bricks in which they built the prison around themselves with.... I found that notion quite profound. My work is a hybrid coffin and brick kiln, built for my size as a nod to the claim of 'digging your own grave' so to speak.
