Broken Clay Pieces

FullSizeRender-1

Unfortunately, the clay pieces are extremely fragile due to not being fired. I made this decision because the air pockets in the clay cause popping sounds when rolling it out and this could directly relate to the popping sounds experienced when pulling out my hair. I am probably going to have to explore different ways in which i can display the clay pieces other than hanging them on the wall.

The good thing about dried up clay that hasn’t been fired is that it can be broken down and reused, this will prevent wasting materials which is a major concern of mine during my practice.
