A face in a crowd is a series of ceramic busts portraying both famous and lesser known artists. I am doing portraits of artists because people tend to separate works of art from those who created them. I am trying to connect a face with a name. Most of the greatest artists that I am drawn to are no longer living. So doing this series is bringing me closer to them. Also, some of them are people that I look up to as well as some of the greatest professors or should I say mentors, which have helped me along the way.
