This ceramic wall sculpture is part of my Closed Sculpture Series. It explores combined forms that inclose space.
I wanted to continue exploring wall sculptures as the sculptures take 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.
After all the hard work of making the piece, the glaze ran and stuck to the kiln shelf. I broke one piece by taking it off the shelf. However I decided all is not lost, I repaired the piece and know it has taken on a new life. This got me questioning what it really means to say something is broken. I kept the repair marks exposed as I thought it was interesting to see the contrast between the purple and the white and also to reveal its history.
