Childhood is when we form so many of our values and ideas. I have explored lots of childish forms in my sculptures and this is another in the series. I often use female forms as they are more fun to make with long hair and dresses.
This is my first attempt at a rocking horse and I love the fun that a simple toy can provide. The movement similar to a swing but really a �horse� no matter how out of proportion, creates a world of imagination. I have stopped my horse from rocking, more for presentation aspects but I must admit that looking at the piece I am transported back to the joy when I had a rocking horse. This piece was also part of a show that went to New York
