splitting hares

Beth Cavener Stichter seems to have the same affliction I do - an unexplainable affinity for rabbits and goats.

Visit her website to see her amazingly alive, visceral, fleshy creations. Be sure to go to the "Materials and Techniques" section and click on the capybara to see the unbelievable amount of work and patience that goes into the large pieces - work that you never see, but is crucial to the piece. I love her sense of weight and movement, all the muscles seem heavy, the skin falling in fleshy piles where you'd expect it to.
