Attachment (Barrel of Monkey Arm)

When I am casting into a mold, I think about the process structurally and conceptually. “What does it mean to be: continuous? Hollow? Seamless? Unfit? A composite?” are questions  I focus on when I am modeling a part. At this point in my trajectory, I felt I wanted to make a sculptural skin for my own body that would be both protective and constricting at the same time. Attachment (Barrel of Monkey Arm), was the first limb I made for this idea. It is a hollow form that my right arm and hand fit into
