Sculpture Series: Like Stone | Open-Minded | Raku | Women As Flowers

As a painter studying at the Art Institute of Chicago, jc björling first understood and appreciated the human figure--the history of a face, the story of a gesture. When sculpting in clay, Björling could feel this. Often using a human model to gain inspiration, the artist abstracts the form, while trying to preserve the "essence" of a gesture or an expression. The resulting small high-fired stoneware sculptures are sometimes turned into small-edition patinated bronzes. Björling is currently at work on a series of Women as Flowers: lifesize abstract sculptures which represent the various stages of life.
