The glazed stoneware torso figures have mythological and ancient references. “Seated Nike” is the only piece I own from this period of ceramic sculpture created for my MFA thesis. Nike is the Greek goddess of victory. Typically depicted with wings as, the grand “Winged Victory of Samothrace” installed at the Louvre, my version is seated rather than in flight. The other sculptures include the paper-like Echo and Narcissus reflected in the mirror bases. In Ovid’s account, Echo falls in love with Narcissus who doesn’t even notice her. While Echo’s body withers away until only her voice is left, Narcissus falls in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water.
