Yellow Jacket Smiling

Tajali Littman

Creating in clay for me is a form of artistic expression.

Yellow Jacket Smiling is a hand-built clay animal sculpture using glazes and cold glaze color highlights.

Animals have been used in stories as metaphors and analogues for human experiences and feelings for ages. Their representations are a source of comfort, protection, wisdom, insight, tragedy and sorrow.

My work seeks to convey a myriad of emotions. I do not presume to dictate what should be felt when my audience views each piece. I believe you can facilitate a direction with the title of the work but the experience must be the viewers.

Enjoy your story woven as you view this sculpture.
