Two sculptures that were included in the Fragments from the Garden show. The hands were created by making silicone molds of my hands and the casting them with pewter, which melts at a relatively low temperature and one that the silicone molds can handle yielding some amazing detail. The character Kearin Ki was one of the founders of the garden complex and responsible for portion of the construction of the Puer Garden Temple.
The Chalcis of Obedience was one of those beautiful accidental finds at a junk shop, when I saw it I immediately knew it should be included next to the reliquary box.
