Kent, Connecticut. Another view of two of Joy Brown’s ceramic sculptures. The pod is a large, hollow ball that joins dozens that Joy has made over the years. These are environmental sculptures that one can place out on a lawn or in a garden and move around experimenting with various configurations.
Joy’s figures, while not explicitly feminine capture feminine gestures, like the hips and legs of this figure from this angle. It’s one thing to photograph a woman lying back, looking for the right pose and feminine detail, yet another to take a month to build that pose from scratch out of clay. This is, no doubt, one of the many things that makes Joy a successful artist.
