Stoneware Clay and Glaze

[description]

Inspiration
This work builds on forms I developed and exhibited during a 10 week Artist Residency at The Leonora Carrington Museum in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
I am now planning to take these forms forward into a new body of work inspired by lichen. I am particularly interested in exploring the symbiotic relationship which exists between the fungi and the algae/cyanobacteria of which lichen is comprised. I am interested in thinking about symbiotic metaphors in relation to material such as clay to glaze, positive to negative, 2d to 3d.

Outline of the creative process
I will hand-build this piece in a lightly grogged stoneware clay. It will have an undulating surface along with cut out holes. I will glaze the work in a range of matt glazes created to my own recipe. It is designed to be hung on a wall.

Time required to create the work
12 weeks

Lorem ipsum, or lipsum as it is sometimes known, is dummy text used in laying out print, graphic or web designs. The passage is attributed to an unknown typesetter in the 15th century who is thought to have scrambled parts of Cicero's De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum for use in a type specimen book. It usually begins with:

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.”

The purpose of lorem ipsum is to create a natural looking block of text (sentence, paragraph, page, etc.) that doesn't distract from the layout. A practice not without controversy, laying out pages with meaningless filler text can be very useful when the focus is meant to be on design, not content.

The passage experienced a surge in popularity during the 1960s when Letraset used it on their dry-transfer sheets, and again during the 90s as desktop publishers bundled the text with their software. Today it's seen all around the web; on templates, websites, and stock designs. Use our generator to get your own, or read on for the authoritative history of lorem ipsum.
