The Artists

Softened by Grief
by: Paul Reiber

One of a series of sculptures I did growing out of my grief at my countries unfortunate wars in the Middle East. Grief can be a great teacher of humility and opening of the heart. The initial inspiration was a small japanese ceramic figure.
The wood is a little used north coast conifer called nutmeg. The fresh wood has a pungent smell that fades into a very faint but pleasant aroma with age.
