Stan Welsh

I think Welsh's portraits are very interesting. The facial expressions he gives the heads are quite unusual, yet are supposed to represent actual human emotions. He works in terracotta and makes the heads 4-5x larger than a normal sized head is. His use of metallic and bright colors to the pieces make them stand out as well as adds interesting characteristics to the faces. His use of semi-everyday objects added to the portraits also is very unique.
