This is one of a kind. Will not be sold again in this deign. Clay Bodies Series by Eve Finlay Miller is a body of work that made as a has way for Eve to use 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. She has used the process of extruding clay as symbolic of this process of pushing and manipulating, perhaps of birth itself. External forces form and deform the perfect extrusion just as we are shaped and moulded 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. On purchasing a Clay Body you will receive a printed leaflet telling you about the work, each piece is imperfect meaning it has imperfections is completely made by the artists hand.
