Known Unknowns




6 March 2019

Known Unknowns    Hand-built figurative ceramic sculpture, fired; with cold finishes and varnishes; assemblage with pieces of carved deer antler (the walrus tusks); on stained wooden base.

480mm high x 290mm diameter

This intentionally ironic piece mixes Neoclassical styling with an environmental message regarding the precariousness of global oceanic warming and “at-risk” species — mermaids and walruses. Conventional cautions apply: “Never look a mermaid in the eyes.”
