Ceramic Wall Sculpture
Created by Christopher Gryder
This ceramic wall sculpture is an astonishing and wondrous composition of earthy colors and abstract patterns. Seven individually hung tiles are created using the earth-forming technique, a one-off casting method developed by the artist. He first carves a dissolvable mold from silt and fills it with liquid clay. Over a period of weeks, the mold dries and dissolves, allowing the clay within to be excavated. Glazed and fired with colored terra sigillata. Due to the nature of this process, slight variations occur between each composition. Tiles are ready to hang; a full-size paper pattern is included for easy and accurate installation. Suitable for indoor or outdoor display. Limited edition of 20.
