"When I started making the Hummels, I would talk about it as taking a mass-produced object and making a one-off of it—taking low art (mass-produced sculpture) and pushing it back into high art. But what’s also going on with the Hummels is the nature of the sculpture itself—that they’re sculptures of children."
