vessels

Pig gut and century old duck egg sculpture. The vessel at the back is made of pig gut and painted with water colour. The vessel at the front is made of paper machie, mosaic century old duck eggs and painted with water colour. This sculpture has been inspired by the hand made vessels that I saw in a museum in Greece. I loved working with the pig gut ( a bit slimy) and am really pleased with the light and transparent way the vessel looks. Pig gut takes the water colour paint really well. I mounted them on plain wire as I did not want the mount  to be a focus of the piece.
