Juggler Jane is a special piece to me because her torso is a vintage wood rattle that my son played with when he was a baby. I hesitated to part with it but he's 13 now and I just can't get him to play with it anymore try as I might. So.. Jane's a juggler and one of the crazy circus folks I've been making. She's sexy and all thighs sporting her bowling pin legs and sassy shoulders. Her head can be positioned anyway you like and she has a wood hula hoop that is loose around her neck. At almost 18" tall, Jane is a juggling force to be reckoned with. She's named, signed, dated and number 87 in the series of 1000 Pieces. Oh and she can be hung on a wall too.

I walked in my bedroom today and realized it looks as tho I have run away and joined the circus. This is not even all the sculptures in photos. Between too many 13 yr old boys shooting nerf guns and other warfare and a bad kitten i've been forced to keep almost all my sculptures in my room for safety and it looks like some strange obsessive decorating scheme...
I would happily ship some off to other crazy people's homes...
