Late 1950s. Sculpture, 4" long, glazed ceramic, by Chris Wayan.
This is the first sculpture I ever did. I was four or five, in preschool or kindergarten. The rest of the class made blobs and smily snowman-heads and kitties whose tails promptly broke off.
I was an early reader, and my mom (a painter) had all these art books, and I thought Henry Moore and Isamu Noguchi and modern sculptors like that were cool. So I set out to create the most possible hollow space, the most holes, the most hole-ness, with the least amount of clay. (For the record, it has seven).
No wonder--I wasn't much bigger than it.
