Recent work in progress (for October exhibition) / by Emma Delpech

I am currently working on this series for an exhibition in Herxheim, Germany in October. They are awaiting glazing and will then be presented on raw wood blocks. These continue to develop the theme of playful spontaneity in my ceramic work, and have been hugely rewarding to create. I start with clay that is partially drying; the remains of another sculpture. This allows some modification but also limits full control. Within each work are a range of different types of clay, again allowing for further inconsistencies to arise during the drying and firing processes. Faces balance and nestle - perhaps sleeping, dreaming, or at rest.
