Construct This

While referencing domestic and urban environments and echoing children’s building blocks, the work welcomes playful interaction. Audiences are invited to contribute to the aesthetic of the objects through the application of colour, pattern, or text, before re-positioning them to assemble their own landscapes.  Through the creation of performative objects the work aims to encourage social exchange by mediating interaction and creating shared experience.

Coil built black clay with coloured slip and stoneware transparent glaze, pastel, chalk, pencil and oil pastel. Porcelain slip casts with decal additions.

With gratitude to Guldagergaard International Ceramics Research Centre.
