Name of Work: Squish

Ceramic / 96”w x 36”d x 17”h

About the Work:

Squish is an assembly of handmade, snuggling ceramic stools. They are squished together when the clay is still soft, so that each piece is shaped by its neighbors which, in turn, are also shaped by their neighbors. The uniquely formed stools, when they are assembled together, make a continuous, passage-like form.
