The Coconut Crab....

The largest crab in the world.  I was inspired to ths piece while visiting an aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tn.  I sat for an hour or so drawing this magnificent crab and wanted to do an abstract sculptural piece of it.

Constructed in 5 sections, it took months to design and build.  With every second I was afraid that it would collapse under it's own weight while in its green state.  It was even more frightning getting this very large piece into the kiln, having it fire without cracking anid then STILL have all the adjoining pieces miraculously line up.

The Coconut Crab may perhaps be my most favorite piece that I've ever built.
