Defiance by Jeremy Pelletier
Bronze cast, 27" tall
From the artist: I work in clay and cast in bronze using the lost wax method. This piece is part of a series depicting strong women caught in a character defining moment. I create in any medium, but my current favorite is clay. I like to make art that draws people in with the overall beauty, then captivates them with detail when they come in for a closer look.
