The inspiration for this piece was focused on the fluidity of form: exploring soft and hard edges while maintaining graphic balance. Yet, the final piece reminded me of Neolithic figures and figurines; a time where 3-dimensional objects first appeared:
"Clay figurines (during the Neolithic Era) were continuously made and unmade: they were intentionally fragmented, burnt, reshaped and re-introduced into circulation. For past people, these were three-dimensional clay objects (or subjects), in constant flux, meant to be engaged with multi-sensorially: handled, interfered with, interacting with human bodies, and with other entities, such as architectural features (buildings, walls, post-holes, etc.), other portable objects, such as house models, water, fire, and so on..."
