The Red Chef

This sculpture is an interpretation of a chef figurine bought at a dollar store.  I used the face as a mold in these Chef Objects.  The source object was a grotesque figure to begin with and I'm mostly happy with the interpretation, but the hands look wrong.  It's hard to tell if he's supposed to be warming his hands over a fire in a garbage can or summoning up something unspeakable from his cauldron.  I like the crudeness of the face and the small details like the bow tie and the bow securing his apron on the back.  I don't have access to a primary red glaze, so I used the plum glaze instead.  His name is to differentiate him from The White Chef, the other chef figurine I bought at the same time.
