Taxi is a full body figurative sculpture in Polymer clay. She stands 11 inches tall and her clothing and wigging is all handmade. She has a scarf for the cold, her red velvet purse and a ticket to adventure in her pocket.
Taxi was inspired by my youth in New York City. It was always difficult to hail a cab and even more so for the elderly. I envisioned her trying to hail a taxi on her way to Grand Central Station. She is slightly frustrated as no one is stopping and she doesn’t want to miss her train.
