This wall ceramic sculpture is part of my Closed Sculpture Series. It explores combined forms that inclose space.
I wanted to continue exploring wall sculptures as the sculpture takes on a different presence on the wall as compared to a freestanding sculpture.
The inspiration was very much process driven as I was looking at ways to combine spheres thrown on the potters wheel which I then stacked on top of each other. I then applied colour and dots to make the form pop out and invite curiosity. There is something quite comical about this piece.
I had this ceramic wall sculpture set inside a gold frame to create a contrast between this modern ceramic from and this classical frame. It is like there is a conflicting time element to it, between the present and the past. Together the artwork takes on a funky look and personally makes me laugh! I hope it can bring something fun to your life as well.
