J.D. Perkin's Giant Ceramic Figures

You won’t believe how big J.D. Perkin can build his ceramic figures. It shouldn’t be a surprise however. After all, he spent years engineering floats for Portland’s Rose Festival. Now he’s ready to devote himself to art full-time. Follow his journey from painting, welding of metal pieces to plaster then clay sculptures. His current work encompasses an exploration of yoga poses.
