Healing Broken Clouds

Installation 2009. UK.

Pieces of crockery were smashed in order to form cracks, which become part of the materials. The cotton wool provides a contrast to the hardness of the crockery, yet the two materials possess the same colour. Above the frame, some unbroken crockery pieces are standing on the edge as if they are waiting to fall and to be healed.

The initial idea of the work came from the word 'china'.
Split and re-united.
