A child of war in CLAY FIRED TO STONE. This child was originally a child of poverty but it blew up into many pieces, due to a malfuntioning kiln, on the morning of the first bombing by the USA in the Gulf War. She/he is patched together again and painted with acrylic and varnished. He/she became the War Child.

Artist's Comments: 

This child of war insisted on being built. I was trying to make a madonna and child but the clay just kept moving in the direction of this child, almost by magic. It was a very unsettling experience but this child has been well loved by many people since.
