I presented the Ruca to my Experimental Writing class last week, Tuesday 27 April 2012.

The artwork is a representation of the poem written by  Elicura Chihuailaf, En Este suelo abitan las estrellas.


This is the artwork:


Title:  Ruca

Size:  250 X 300 X 100mm

Materials:  Stoneware white clay, string, aluminium wire, recycle timber & tin cans.


This is the moon.


I made this circle in a ceramic dish I am working on for another artwork.  It’s melted glass, melted at a temperature higher than the recommended temperature 850°C.  Because the temperature was too high, the glass shrinks and the holes are formed.
