Image of a small ceramic wren bird. Used as a mould and showing the collision of 2 materials coming together. Hammered to open up and expose the cast pewter core

A delightful eBay find. I wanted to experiment and use old, hollow figures and animals as moulds and where molten pewter is directly cast into the ceramics—actively embracing the element of risk, chance and failure.
