Why don't you smile Bozi? is an ongoing sculptural series that I started in 2013. The series is inspired by the stylized design of a Persian ibex borrowed from a six thousand year old Iranian ceramic beaker. In the Persian language "bozi" means little goat, and the title of the work refers to a humorous folk song that was meant to spread holiday cheer and put a momentary smile on frozen faces of people. Using the same fascinating and ancient metal casting techniques to create my larger sculptural works, I made a limited edition of wearable Bozi sculptures.
The first edition of Bozi is a limited edition of ten cast silicon bronze pendants. Each piece is made out of a microcrystalline wax model and then molded and poured in molten metal. Each pendant is individually hand polished and rubbed down to achieve a sheen patina. This cast bronze pendant has a crude and ancient quality to it that combines the unpolished nature of ancient arts with sleek modern aesthetics.
