Onions 2013.

There is a step in the growth of the onion, from seed to bulb, when one green leaf plays a freedom dance in the sun taking a variety of crazy forms.  Whoever sees the onions cut for sale at the market is missing this unique spectacle.  The sight of these fascinating shapes seemed very meaningful and relevant and I had to take some pictures.  The memory of the dance and the photos inspired this series of sculptures.  I have tried to figure in clay my feelings for this memorable choreographic craziness of onions.
