More old work that I found from my college days. Ceramics, something which I'd always love to go back too.
These ones are made with craft crank clay mixed with various grades of wood shavings, made 11% larger to allow for the shrinkage rate of that kind of clay. They were then smoked fired and bolted together with metal parts of found origins or rusted with ammonia. The next and final stage was to dairy products and keep in a warm damp place to help grow fungus and blue mould (extremely unhygienic to touch).  All vessels are made to the volume of the human brain. The theme was the death cycle, when something dies to allow for something else to live, or something pretentious like that. It was along time ago :)
