More information

The English ceramist Martin Smith did not make use of any traditional accessories, such as a wheel or mould, for this work, preferring instead cutting and sanding machines. He sawed and sanded a white ceramic sphere into four segments, which he then glued together into a new creation. The inside is painted with engobes (coloured in clay silt).
