The heart of Ceramic is a large hand-thrown clayware bell surrounded by five smaller ones. The hand-thrown bells may symbolize an earthier past, while their dynamic context represents incorporation into a global age of technology. The motion of the bells against one another generates unique sounds within each bell that are recorded as they occur. The contrast of the ‘natural world’ with the technological age is represented through the use of the computer to alter the sounds generated by the sculpture.
