Chosen artefact is Richard Deacons- Empirical Jungle.
I wanted to replicate the structure.
I created some extrusions, as shown below.
I created 5 half circle shapes, which were hollow on the inside, making the sculpture weak. I propped up the unsupported sections with newspaper.
I had been spraying water onto it every few days but due to the waiting time for a kiln unfortunately the sculpture was cracked and broke.
Attempt 2 : I used a different structure using a centre balance to support and solid clay, not extrusion.
I then created a glaze.
