    Awareness by Nicole McMurray

    £30.00£150.00

    Nicole’s body of work is about raising awareness of Autism, so the materials and the process used were carefully selected to reflect this. These jigsaw forms have been casted with earthenware slip – the reason behind this is that Nicole wants the forms to be identical to represent how Autism is a hidden disability, meaning there are no physical indicators that someone has Autism. Another reason for using this technique was so that each of the pieces fit together to represent how each person has a place in society.

     

    Materials used – earthenware casting slip and glaze. Process used – slip casting.
