About

Dimensions: 18" x 10" x 6"
Materials: Stoneware, Porcelain, Glaze

Calvin Ma's sculptures of "Home Bodies" can usually be found with an animal companion. Just as the nature of his sculptures reference the comfort of home, and being in one's preferred habitat, there is an equal emphasis on closeness and sharing; these particular themes are best exemplified in this piece from his newest body of work.

The small porcelain heads that have been a recurring theme in his most recent works stand in for "happy thoughts", which the Home Body figure is sharing with his pet companion.

Calvin Ma graduated with his MFA in Sculpture from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
