Black Nest Pod

The Nest Pods are hand-built over a former using small individual slabs of paper-clay.  The texture is made by dipping textile strips into clay slip (liquid clay) and applying to the form.  My paper-clay is made from a mixture of clays mixed with paper pulp made from toilet paper. This makes the unfired pieces stronger, allowing for thinner clay to be used. The paper and textile fibres burn out during the bisque-firing (first), leaving the finished clay pieces lighter.   The pieces are then fired a second time to around 1140C.  No two pieces are exactly the same.
