Amphitrite, Goddess of the Sea

Since I am drawn to the sea,  for this piece I wanted
to incorporate the dynamic of churning waves with
the smooth curves of the figure.

In researching sea goddesses, I found the stylized
dolphin / fish image reappearing over and over.  

The stylized dolphin you see here was inspired by a
Sandwich Glass candlestick resting right on the
hutch in my living room.

You don’t have to look far for inspiration.
