Description
Ceramic made (we think) from a mould formed from rare meat. Intense, unevenly applied, red glaze maintains the strong allusion to blood and flesh. The organic forms are structured by the rectilinear "grid" of a central spine and "ribs", the slats and wooden structure of the eponymous "Shutter."

Information is being sought from the artist and her dealer concerning the exact technique.
