Toasted Brain Sculpture

This is a finished handmade porcelain brain decorated with a teal metallic glaze fired to cone 10 reduction, and finished with a little oxidation. The piece is about self-awareness and daydreaming. Lately, I find it easier to dwell on everything that is not going as a like-- job, relationships, finances, etc... and getting stuck in a self-perpetuating cycle of anger and self-doubt, left with an overwhelming sensation of hopelessness. This piece is a confrontation of my racing thoughts and a conscious attempt to shift their course.
