"Eager For Light" by Steven Gootgeld  

This month's featured sculpture:

"Eager For Light"

11.5"h x 12.5"w x 3.5"d, hand-built ceramic

Meticulously built by hand and fired three times to achieve Steve's layered glaze effects. This sculpture is finished in deep rich black, an earth-tone matte and green glazes. This piece is inspired by one's personal growth to break out of the box and expand into new ideas, represented by the green seedlings reaching for light.
