This piece is going on its travels to its new home.
|"Pregnant" 40x20x80cm wood and glass|
The client came to the studio earlier this week and selected this piece for her New York City home. I now need to pack it well and get the freight forwarder to deliver it safely. I intend to use a lot of firm packing and a wooden box to help ensure its safe arrival.
This is a strip constructed piece. The strips were cut and then formed. These were then assembled and fused together. Finally the piece was slumped over a special ceramic form created from a plow share. This makes a connection for me between the growing of seed and the curves of a pregnant woman. Both contain the developing form which will later appear.
