Artwork description:

The theme of my work is fragility and anti-fragility. My daughter, who was collecting pebble turrets on the beach, inspired me to create this work. Carefully and intently, she set every next stone. One wrong move - and the turret collapsed. But she stubbornly continued, and the turrets stood, grew taller. But a person passing by destroyed them simply by stepping nearby. So our life - can be fragile and easily susceptible to external influences, and can be anti-fragile - and a person will move towards his goal, destination, regardless of any obstacles.

I use cambrian green clay and make using hand sculpting techniques. The work is then fired in an electric kiln at a temperature of about 900c. Work tinted by hand to give greater color depth.

Clay works are lovely to hold – they have a great β€œfeel” about them.

The nature of the clay and the design means there are small bumps and various marks. This effect is all part of the charm of the work.

This work is hand-built and totally unique. The work is suitable for interior locations.
Work will be sent in a wooden box, carefully packed.

The work is signed at the bottom, painted. Certificate of authenticity included.

Any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
