The Daguerreotype series are clay artworks that were inspired by and made with a Daguerreotype.  Popular around the 1850s, the Daguerreotype was one of the first commercial photography products created by developing a unique image on silver treated plates.  Abandoned and collected at flea markets, the images help inspire the clay artwork they enhance.

Over time, 16"x10.5"x8.5", is a handcrafted clay sculpture of a young woman with a daguerreotype of an older couple (herself?) on her bound chest. Her straw hat and floral dress are trimmed with a white picket fence and represent historical women.
