Wolf Head (with sound)

I made this sculpture of a wolf head from ceramics, with sound recordings of humans at a tailgate field emitting from it. I wanted to make an analogy with humans getting drunk and playful and bonding, but also sounding lonely and desperate…like a wolf howling for its friends, or using its mournful sound for communication and to place itself in a context with other wolves. Why howl, if not for locating oneself within a community.

Sadly it is food colouring so I know where I’m painting/blending my glazes…but I may have to invent some bright colours for new work seeing this! Light will shine from their eyes, perhaps in a tribute to the Trojan Dog sculpture from my old stomping ground near Fairfield Station.

People say New York is no place for pets, but it seems New Yorkers didn’t get the memo.

I have been working on a series of ceramic sculptures of “Dogs of the West Village”, inspired by New York’s abundance of visible dogs in public space.
