This is a variation on the Blockhead theme but constructed horizontally. Rather than using a sgrafitto technique on the walls of the piece, I used old Lino Blocks to make impressions on the wet clay before using the slabs to make the pieces. I didn’t have a specific use in mind but the pieces could definitely be used for flower arrangements (with a wire support) or for fruit etc. centerpiece.
These pieces are a lot more spontaneous to make. I don’t have to carefully make and choose particularly shaped images to fit the edges anad planes of the piece but instead make a slab that has a particular texture/set of images that can be used almost like a decorated/patterned fabric.
