Even Flowers and Stars are Small (?)

 

Butterfly Effect . Portland Institute for Contemporary Art . 2008

 

Porcelain hands made on commission. 12 hands for 12 of the Leslie Durst's friends.

Butterfly Effect was the lovely show put on by PICA collected all the gifts together

my idea was to cast jewelery display hands in porcelain

hired Eric Mirabito - cermamics student at Alfred . each hand has an animal themed constellation of glued garnets . each hand was packed in a wool lined wooden box
