The bone series is a series of work that is focused on the remains of a form. It is an abstract interpretation inspired by the arrangements of biological creatures that have been reassembled, just as a dinosaur or whale skeleton might be configured for an educational display. I imagine that these pieces might be discovered in the natural world as the only clues to the past of what this creature might have been. This composition is comprised of multiple individual discs of clay with holes cut and carved into them, the discs range in size from approximately 1″ to 12″ across. The disc fragments were arranged in a linear format that is approximately 84″ long.
