Blackfish is a sculptural installation which contains 10 Orcas and 3 representational ice forms. The media is high fire stoneware clay with glaze. The Footprint is approximately 10X6 feet and 5 foot high. Orcas are approximately 2 foot. Icebergs 5 x2.5 feet. The Blackfish sculpture can go inside or outside. The content is based on the powerful documentary regarding the treatment of Orcas in the Aquarium theme parks and the resulting deaths of some of the trainers that handle them. My intent is to raise public awareness of how these magnificent creatures are being treated in captivity.
