Artist’s Fun Fact:

Ratatouille was inspired by the Direct TV satellite dishes I wanted to use for ears. Most of the found objects are stainless steel kitchenware, including a sink from my cousin’s dairy farm and my friend’s gas grill top. The large whisk was saved for several years waiting for the right sculpture. The kinky whiskers were salvaged from a heavy woven screen. Ratatouille is meant to be fun, not a statement about any restaurant that may choose to display him.
