Biography  
Cecilia Miguez


A sculptor in wood and bronze of abstract figurative works, many of them with themes of flight, Cecilia Z. Miguez often uses found objects such as leather strips, Japanese boxes and vials.  The result is "finely crafted, elongated creatures, seamlessly melded with the wood and bronze." (165).  Many of her figures seem cartoonish and hybrid, such as ones with bird heads and human bodies or ones lifting off in some sort of rigged flying craft.
