A few years ago I dreamed up a work to be titled Objects of the Earth Celebrate the Birth of the Sky. It was to comprise 80 - 100 smallish ceramic objects arranged on a low table or plinth on the floor, or even just on the floor. These objects were to have earth-related shapes and the fact they were ceramic and made of earth was important.
My kiln lid needed refurbishment and I still haven't got around to it, so the objects have never been made except as the odd maquette fashioned out of card or paper. They were to stand at rakish angles as though staring joyfully at the sky. who knows if this project will ever happen, but sometimes it's just nice to have a dream to go back to and have another ponder about from time to time. I made these ones from discarded print paper - they only just stand up. Here they are, teetering on the brink - just like my dream of a beautiful artwork.
