Made from stoneware clay. Glazed with Amaco glazes with a velvet finish. Clay Bodies Series by Eve Finlay Miller is a body of work that has been hand made Eve uses clay to create sculptural forms. The sculptures are bodies exposed to pressure and movement. The material of clay embodies the human, a material that is from the Earth, which goes in and comes out as something that has been designed in another’s image. With the miniatures She has used the process of extruding clay using a smaller scale machine, this process is symbolic of the process of pushing and manipulating, perhaps of birth itself. External forces form and deform the perfect extrusion just as we are shaped and molded by the events of our lives. Eve Finlay Miller has created a series of clay sculptures that each stand-alone but like ourselves also have a context as part of a group. You can buy your piece to enjoy as a stand alone piece or find other ones from the collection to add to your original piece. When you add to your collection you the works create a pattern that draws the viewer’s eye to the sensual curves of the clay. The various heights and levels complement the environment around them and give a meaning and static grounding to the point in the room where they have been placed.
