Fragile X

Sabine Wecker

This piece consists of two piece. (top is stoneware, and the bottom is porcelain). The piece will come in two parts and holds together with museum wax (included).
The work explores the mother as a space holder while pointing to fragility, identity and balance. The preciousness and fragility of the piece is achieved by little round seeds worked into the clay which then unpredictably explode during the firing process. The grounding on a rock talks to a nurturing stability as well as balance.
