"I may be showing some heads. I guess I try to get some 'form' into my heads—at least I’m less suspicious of form than I am of formlessness. Maybe 'character' too— but whose character? I don’t think I have any special insight into the 'characters' whose heads I’m sculpting. To what extent does my character get into these heads? Who am I? I sure don’t know." –Jock Ireland, 2018
