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.

Seated Folly, 16"x12.5"x9", is a female jester. Named Folly because that is the feminine of the Jester. She is handbuilt in clay and finished with underglaze colors and a matte glaze.  She sits on a Jatoba hardwood base and has multiple mini Daguerreotypes of her female ancestors on her spine.  They are supporting, if you will, as all our founding mothers do.
