à Perte de Vue

'till beyond one's view

Stoneware Clay with bronze patina

Inspired by those familiar with 'wanderlust' - there are always the 'farewells' involved.  Whether from those at home or from those leaving - this figure represents them both.  Leaning forward on a mossy stone pillar engraved with the Latin phrase "Caelum non Animum mutant qui trans Mare Current" They change their sky but not their hearts who cross the sea a lady in late-Victorian attire, balances on her arm, straining forward to keep those in sight as long as she can; symbolizing the sure knowledge that though they will view distant and exotic lands, yet their hearts will be with friends and family at home.
