stoneware, multiple glazes, lustre
22 x 21 x 42cm
Tubular is a stoneware slip cast vessel. The original form is sculpted from cardboard tube and polystyrene and moulded in plaster. Multiple firings, glazes and lustres transform the original throw away materials into a more precious form. The texture of the cardboard tube, cut marks and the beads of the polystyrene are enhanced and simultaneously disguised by the glaze. With its hands on its hips, do you recognise what is once was?
