The Gift

by Paige Bradley

Size: 27 x 18 x 18 in
Medium: Bronze

As a young woman not sure of my own future, I wondered what it would be like to be a mother. Before I became a mother myself, I received the precious opportunity to sculpt a mother and her daughter. When they first came to my studio, I realized that this little person was completely happy and free. From the first time we worked together, the baby's arms were outstretched, excited to grasp life. The mother, on the other hand, was more reserved and almost shy. It was as if her daughter had become a new beacon of light guiding her. Paige Bradley
