Sand Shaped Procelain

An ongoing experiment into producing objects carved from sand blasted floral foam. In this instance a series of candlesticks were made.

Taking influence from classic art deco designs, profiles were cut and attached to blocks of floral foam. When sandblasted, the profiles are extruded producing bellowing, free-flowing tails creating layers of movement, texture and time.

The resultant forms are slip cast in porcelain; the smooth, polished faces of the original profiles are a stark contrast to the intricately textured, rock-like sides.

I first explored this technique in my Phenol Formaldehyde-Latex Chair.
