stitching urns . . .

I have been working on some new experiments, creating objects which play with the senses...in this case the haptic and visual senses. I cut shapes out of neoprene and stitched them together to make soft 3d vessels. I have started working with a ceramicist to take molds from my vessel forms in order to make some slip casts. 

Below: working on some samples to pick up detail of stitching and texture

My neoprene models. The finished cast shrinks by 20% so these have been sized up
