Heart's Portal to Nature

Last Thanksgiving I opened a bag of clay and formed this sculpture. It needed several weeks to dry--there are about 25 pounds of clay here, and then with the busy end-of-semester firings I couldn't get it into the kiln until just before break.

I call it Heart's Portal to Nature not because it's shaped roughly like a heart. Instead, I want my outdoor sculpture to draw one's vision and heart to nature.

So, I'm pretty happy with this piece. It stands about 30 inches tall. But I'd like to go on and make similar work that's about 10-12 times this size.
