This work follows my recent travels in the deserts of Thebes in Egypt and Petra in Jordan. Back in the city, by casting a MacBook polystyrene packaging component, I made generations of moulds which lock back together like Lego. The use of different clays, such as terracotta and porcelain, references the contrasting ceramic traditions of Chinese and Japanese pottery. The sculpture is guided by ideas for rearranging forms, pivoting, inverting and regeneration.
