Walking and collecting all sorts of odds and ends is one of my favorite pastimes.  I use these found objects for inspiration in my sculptures.  One day I picked up a small pear from someone’s garden. I was struck by how the shape resembles the human form. Pears are like people in other ways too. Pears come in all different shapes, sizes and colors. They are fragile and bruise easily.
