12″ – $600. In this relief, the man and fish share an eye

Reliefs Mrs. Angel

Mrs. Angel was our neighbor for many years and we occasionally visited. She was courteous, intelligent, friendly. In her last years she had severe dementia, and during one visit with a friend, we took a number of photos, which we shared with her, though she no longer recognized herself in them. These reliefs were made from the photos. She had become totally uninhibited and honest, and expressed opinions on the church, sex and my friend’s and my comparative beauty (I paled in comparison). She enjoyed our visit though would never remember it. We were the greatest beneficiaries. Porcelain with glaze

I’m showing the painted and unpainted versions. They are about 10 inches high. These sold for $2,000 apiece. Prices for portrait commissions vary, depending on size and style.

Below are 2 previous sculptures of mastectomies that I’ve done. While meeting the public at fairs, I’ve spoken with many women who have undergone this operation and discovered different attitudes from each individual woman regarding its impact on their lives. I’ve tried to express these attitudes in different sculptures.


10″ high – $1600.

Sold. Will take orders Can be in white or dark stoneware.

“White Mastectomy”

This piece was commissioned by an oncologist for his hospital. It’s about 12″ high. I’ve done about 6 sculptures of mastectomies now and after the first two, because I had spoken with so many cancer survivors who commented on the first pieces, without my planning it the one who had lost the breast became the stronger one in the sculpture. This piece sold for $1800.

Not a mastectomy but a tribute to the love experienced between two people healing from cancer
