Vote Out the Ding Dongs

10 x 4.25 x 4.25” inches
Glazed ceramic, polished bronze, and leather

Artist Statement: The ring of a bell serves as a call, reminder and marker of time. My handmade clay bells, flooded in uniquely painted blue glaze, are meant to serve as a call to action and a reminder to stay alert and engaged while making plenty of constructive “noise”.  
Like a vote, the ring of a bell grows stronger when joined by others and suggests the hope that we may soon “Vote Out the Ding Dongs” (scribed into the clay) and create a Blue Wave for 2018 as a roar of protest and a ring of hope. (Hand cast brass clapper in the form of a clenched “power” fist creates the sound.)
