The Struggles are the remains of a stuffed animal after being infused with porcelain slip, formed and fired. They signify the acts of cremation and preservation, and transformation; in subject, concept and material. Each Struggle recalls the emotional past of a toy while suggesting a new potential for narrative or play.
