JP's Description: I had done a series of objects with aggressive protruding parts, and wanted to 'soften' the tendency giving some feminine grace somehow. This work originated standing upright and reached the ceiling of the room I was working in. It curved out from the wall and it's sides ondulated in a similar fashion.
One day while drying in the studio, it just slipped down the wall and crashed to the ground on it's side. For some reason I don't recall, it stayed that way and was eventually finished to become a free-standing piece.
It was one of those early works that (literally) broke away from the confines of the wall, and it's implied two-dimensionality.

There's a lot of Henry Moore in this piece. I really like the sensual femine quality. You'd probably have to get rid of the grit, but this would also be a fantastic marble, or bronze piece.......
