I have chosen Artefact Empirical Jungle by Richard Deacon, 2003 to use in my creative process.
Richard Deacon uses metaphorical references in movement, material and process, and then implements them methodically to create his pieces.
According to Art Fund, The National Fundraising Charity for Art, each section was created by hand with Richard Deacon and a team of collaborators. I wanted to know what technique would have been used to create these almost pipe like sections. Clare Curneen a ceramists who had pieces in the show Fragile at Cardiff Museum along side Richard Deacon, shared her insight with me and thought it may be a technique called extrusion.
It was very difficult to find any information on this piece of work so I contacted Richard Deacon who kindly sent his catalogue.
I considered staying with the mixing energies and was going to use intertwining bodies –CLICK HERE.
I wanted to create a similar glaze to Empirical Jungle by using two glazes.
