Ceramics and inks
My new hat is a ceramics sculpture of a child bust, with an octopus as a hat.
In the artist conception, this piece resemble a surrealistic image of children faces, that can be opened as small cupboards. The concept is about how much every person is willing or able to open herself to others: sometimes we prefer to sty “closed” not to reveal too much of ourself and so, stay safe. To be an open book means to be vulnerable, and it is when we can be hurt.
This piece is an experimental one: Francesca doesn’t use very often ceramics, but this time she wanted to use a very traditional material for a very conceptual piece.
This artwork is a unique piece.
Ceramics is a very particular choice for Francesca, hope you enjoy it!
