'Untitled,' Sculpture, 2018

Awhile ago I attempted to fire two sculptures which of course, shattered. I'm not one to turn away from something I spent a lot of time on and so I did what I could with what little I had.
I gathered the broken pieces of each Sculpture and stuck what I could back together, like a bad jig-saw puzzle, I could only get so far. Faces broken and fragmented, patched up with nature, wood and bone.
'Untitled,' 2018, pit-fired ceramic, drift wood, wood, jaw bone (probably sheep)

'Untitled,' 2018

One of the few pieces that survived the last pit firing.
A mixed-media piece, pit-fired ceramic on ink dyed board, with sticks and snail shells.
Some nice close up shots below.
Appologies for the poor photos and glare.

Giving Birth to Monsters

 Messing about in the studio, using old cast aside bits and bobs and putting them together.
 A Sea Urchin, (Echinocardium Cordatum), or sea potato, wire, gold leaf and polymer clay.

Was using an old sea shell as a painting palette. 
Added an old blackout poem for substance.

Uncanny Space

Snail Shell embedded in concrete and stone
The home encased in stone, the home becomes inaccessible, unliveable,  uncomfortable, unfamiliar.
