Hot Dog [glazed clay]

Betty Spindler, 2000
Hot Dog, typical of Betty Spindler’s food imagery, is presented without ketchup because that is the way the artist likes her own prepared. Before Spindler begins to sculpt her objects she cuts out a paper model, which helps her to keep the right proportions while working in clay. The end product results from shaping slabs of clay around crushed newspaper that roughly suggest the form.Smithsonian Institution
