Serpent and magpie

Joanna Bagley

Painter Sculptor Ceramicist




This sculpture was inspired by Alice and Wonderland. In part of the story her neck starts to grow longer and longer until suddenly she can no longer see her feet. At that moment, a bird flies by and cries out "serpent, serpent!" to which she replies,"I'm not a serpent, I'm a little girl".

This piece was fired in a gas kiln to cone 10.
