Product Details

Description:

Small hand-sized pinched form decorated with a volcanic and variegated glaze. A multi-facetted form this can be stood on its end or displayed horizontally and is full of tactile goodness. This is one of a series of hand-held sculptural forms providing both a feast for the eyes and the hand – more to be added shortly!

Weight: .100 kg
Dimensions: 8 x 8 x 12 cm
Care Instructions:

The only care this will need is occasional dusting or running under the tap to clean.

Story:

These small sculptures grew out of the observation that if you have a lump of clay in your hand it is impossible not to play with it. I wanted to see how far I could push the clay by pinching it out and allowing it to “do its own thing” whilst ostensibly just playing with a lump of clay. Pinching the “fins” without trying to exercise control over the clay in fact requires a good understanding of the material and when to stop. This organic process of making produces forms that themselves feel organic, as if they naturally grew that way and might actually take off under their own steam. The spontaneous rhythm of the curves and the delicate edges create both a visual and tactile delight. They are also a nod to the sculptor Naum Gabo who created handheld sculptures as gifts and talismans.
