Owl & Pussycat

6 March 2022

Owl & Pussycat Hand-built ceramic sculpture, fired, glazed, with cold finishes; assemblage with assorted findings (e.g. copper, antique sewing machine parts, etc.); mounted on a stained Hemlock base. 

400mm high x 370mm wide x 165mm

This figurative piece plays on the well-known poem “The Owl and the Pussy- Cat” by Edward Lear (see full poem here). Two distinctly engaging characters lounge in a ceramic boat amidst a fanciful setting… evoking feelings of love, marriage, and joy — “in a world that has no sorrow, suffering, or obstacles.”
