Fragile Things, Part Two
porcelaineous stoneware (drawer), translucent porcelain for the bony pendant forms, porcelain glazes and colourants
7.5 x 12 x 10cm
Fragile Things is a series of small works that are based on fossils of prehistoric wildlife. Small obscure and temporarily unidentified bones or fragments may later become significant when more material is discovered. The drawer itself forms a part of the work either for display or storage, reminiscent of old fashioned museum display drawers for specimens. These small bone-like structures are also wearable as pendants and they can be stacked in various ways to create larger sculptural forms.
