Viral X

Tamsin van Essen's porcelain sculpture Viral X explores erosion and the disruption of form. The angular form has been slip cast with alternate layers of black-stained and white porcelain. The sculpture was then sandblasted to reveal the inner layers and erode the geometric form. The translucency of the porcelain and the interruption of the surface makes it possible to glimpse through to layers beneath, creating a tension between the seen and the obscured.
