Reject GMO
Reject GMO "Franken Chicken"
Stoneware and Translucent Porcelain
20" long

The ‘Reject GMO’s’ are my version of GMO organisms engineered and grown in the laboratory, in the fervent corporate quest to produce new and exciting foods and products -- but unfortunately these organisms were discarded, because for one reason or another they were not commercially viable. Perhaps some were too aggressive (excessive biting and viciousness, for example); in any case they are one-of-a-kind genetic combinations of animal and plant, and in some cases even human (a human will eat anything – they are easy to feed).

This Chicken has been engineered with fruit and corn, and her backside glows every time she lays an egg.
