Powder to the People
Sculpture, polymer clay on wood
10 inches diameter
Powder to the People is a 10-inch in diameter polymer clay sculpture by Pat Frades, a part of Electric Youth. In this piece, the mouth represents the youth of today and the courage they often exhibit to speak their minds, to fight for their rights, to find solutions to problems and to utter words of appreciation and love. The burst of bright-colored blooming mushrooms depicts the good energy that they radiate when they decide to use this freedom to inspire, to heal, and to help.
“This sculpture is inspired by recent events of how the youth is not afraid to speak out the truth in their minds.”
