Disguise as a form of protection allows one to move through the world without exposing vulnerabilities. Referencing Little Red Riding Hood, the heroine turns the tale on its head.  Her naivete does not make her a victim, as she watches the story unravel around her.  She is a strong, savvy protagonist, actively determining her world and eager to interact with it. Her spirit harnesses the moon, representing the power of the Maiden, Mother, and Crone.

Hand built porcelain stoneware with layers of ceramic and cold finishes. She sits on an antique foundry mold that is stained and painted.  She wears a wolf hood that is heat formed by hand and hand stitched and embellished.  There are more than 500 black and silver stitches to create a thick texture of fur.  The interior is lined in bright red velvet with beadwork and tassels.  Her eye is embellished with vintage pins and vintage silver thread.
