You might ask. These blocks of solid porcelain will hopefully inspire the next step of exploration. How, I hear you ask?
Well, they may be blocks of porcelain but they each bring together 2 different porcelains - each of which will have a different shrinkage level. It might only be 1% difference but this should result in cracks and tears in the blocks when they have been high fired - which to me will begin to create thoughts of stress and coping - mirroring the challenges that have faced The Valleys and the people of the area.
We'll see what happens - the simple columns are also made up of 2 different porcelains - so they might totally collapse.
Fingers crossed for some "action" - something to really get to grips with in future work!
