Contemplating the sky
This ceramic sculpture is part of my Closed Sculpture Series. It explores combined contrasting forms that inclose space.
The inspiration behind this sculpture came from my continued interest in Stonehenge and stone circles in the UK and its link to the sky and clouds. For me clouds symbolise, spirituality, entering another space, contemplation and curiosity with what happens when we die. This all relates back to my personal experience of people close to my life passing away. Importantly though I would like to leave space for the imagination and curiosity. What happens when we die?
