The head angle of this pinched pottery clay bust is full of emotion. Artist Denise Carletta talks about how her inspiration is often about exposing ourselves, our true selves, whoever that is. And how much work it is to embrace that part of our nature. She also says, "I am captivated by the human figure and the way a gesture can speak to us. A simple truth through simple forms, this is what inspires me to create sculptures."
This male bust sculpture in black clay adds a touch of the dramatic to a side table, book shelf, on top of a stack of artist books on your coffee table. A compelling, emotive and provocative artwork yet super accessible in size and form.
