Angle of repose

About this project

My current project concerns the degree to which my ceramics can tilt or lean in a given direction before they fall over!
In order to counterbalance the piece which is hand built by coiling it is weighted in the opposite direction from the angle of tilt.
The bands of colour emphasize the direction of movement and yet I hope to retain a sense of restrained elegance and still calm at the same time.
