Faults

The Faults series is the result of an investigation into geological processes, and humans’ desire to control and obtain organic matter. The work produced uses a layering technique informed by sedimentary rock formations to create a combustible mould. The technique creates cracking across the outside surface of the work which is uncontrollable due to rapidly heating the clay. The human induced tension that is created in the clay could be compared to contemporary concerns towards our own environment.
