Whimsy, earthenware, bright colors, it's no wonder I love Bogard's sculptures. But I think it's the gesture, relationships, and emotion which entangle these surreal figures that really legitimizes them. I would love to see these pieces in person one day and would equally love a workshop by Bogard. I am so curious how she goes about developing her concepts,
constructing these figures, and her finishing the surfaces (these are all cold finished). Scratch that, you can see exactly how she makes these sculptures on her website. Bogard has photo-documented the entire process. How lucky are we?
