This ceramic portrait bust of a child was a commission from a personal friend who wanted to capture her child’s intelligent and curious nature in a medium that would become an instant family heirloom.  Arye worked from life and from photos of 24 views of the active child.  He began when Zoe was 7-years old and the sculpture was unveiled at a special house party when she was 10.
