"Death Scenes" My ceramic landscapes create new endings for the cartoon drama of Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner. In the cartoon, the coyote's rudimentary traps backfire. His efforts to catch the bird are always for naught. In my "Death Scenes", the traps succeed forcing the drama to end with the total destruction of the roadrunner.
