Sculptural artist: Jodie Atherton



Artist: Jodie Atherton

I am an figurative and sculptural artist in Laramie WY. This sculpture (above) is entitled Emergence. The dimensions are approximately 5.5 x 2.5 x 3". The torso is made out of ceramics, stained with layers of ink and then the seed beads were glued in place one by one all over her torso. Emergence is a sculpture in a series about my healing journey after a car accident. I love water in all forms and I like to see this sculpture as myself rising up, out of the water, water wings open to the sky.... As an avid kayaker in the spring, the color of this sculpture reminds me of the frozen waters of winter and to remember that, even while frozen, I as well as water, have the ability to morph into a new shape as spring arrives...By definition, emergence is the way complex systems and patterns arise out of a multiplicity of relatively simple interactions.

Below is my newest piece, River Nymph, which has seed beads on the wire "river".
