This sculpture is 7.5x8.5x10 inches in size.
Sarah says "The process of creating art is what defines it most, rather than the final product, as it is then that one can see true beauty transfigure.
During the process of creating these sculptures, there were critical stages in which I needed to work with the clay in order to create the forms I desired. The contour of the clay needed to be shaped early on when the clay was still pretty soft, in order to capture the natural fall of the clay. The nails needed to be placed towards the very end of the process when the clay was almost hardened completely.
During the firing of the piece, the nails change from bright silver to a matte black, which signifies a moment of beauty within the process. When creating this sculptur, I intended to capture the motion in which the clay fell due to the natural state of gravity weighing it down, while contrasting this with the sharpness of the steel nails protruding out. This sculpture is part of a series of five, all based around the same process."
