Tall box, 1997
Porcelain and T material

Museum number 2001- 55

Lara Scobie builds up the textures and surfaces onto this box shape using tiny pieces of porcelain and T material rolled very thinly, imprinted with inventive tools and delicately coloured with oxides. T material is often used for modelling like this because of its flexible, resilient qualities.
