Baby pipefish


Aug 21

I was admiring one of the spineless cactus thriving and blooming big buds at the Nature Lab today, not knowing that it was a carrion plant that will bloom flowers with giant, starry, meaty and hairy flower-petals. The flower once bloomed, would smell of rotten meat attracting flies as their pollinators. … carnal flowers. 

 After I came home, I continued reading Angela Carter and I looked up images of her work and found one of the book covers…


“The woods enclose and then enclose again, like a system of Chinese Boxes opening one into another; the intimate perspectives of the wood changed endlessly around the interloper, the imaginary traveller walking towards an invented distance that perpetually receded before me. It is easy to lose yourself in these woods.”

The Erl-King, The Bloody Chamber

by Angela Carter


Pipefish in captive, pregnant?!

No clay left now :(. After I’ve made more clay, I will make this into a sculpture… The drawing kind of bring everything together….From body to wishes and prayers and shrines and all of the haunting pathos…

Strokes of silversides.

Strokes of silversides.


Still of a silverside.

Still of a silverside.


Water glittered by fish scales.


Silver flashing its side.
