Clayton created Jack O’ Lantern because he wanted a different take on jack rabbits. He had been working on a jack rabbit in full run, legs outstretched, and realized that if he stood it upright, it could be put to work holding a lantern. This bulb is low wattage but sheds enough light to see a walkway or short set of steps. It can also be placed indoors, as shown recently when Clayton combined his art with two artist friends, Doug and Pat Mooberry, for the open studio tour. There is a dignity to the jack rabbit that is evident in this photograph.
