Bricks Along the Journey


This is a work I am very proud of. It was created for a local charity for breast cancer, called Bricks Along the Journey, Bricks for Breast Cancer. Artists were asked to take a brick and transform it into a work of art that would then be auctioned off to raise money for breast cancer research and cure. I am proud and happy to say that my brick here fetched $450 for the cause. It is a polymer clay fused to the brick and then painted to resemble a dark bronze. I used a variety of sculpted and molded faces to create this milange of faces. We are not just a bunch of nameless faces was my theme.

Love the way this brick came out! Very COOL!
I was going to do the brick auction last year but didn't. Maybe this year?!
