Ceramic outdoor sculpture – Surface Tension by Michelle Maher. This is a large-scale outdoor sculpture – 45 pieces – priced at €6,500.
Dimensions: 1 m diameter x 1.5 m high – as each sphere is separate can be configured to suit the location.
This ceramic sculpture was inspired by the science of bubbles & the Aurora Borealis.
Surface Tension is a hand-built and carved sculpture. Each of the spheres was formed by hand in my Dublin studio and then carved using a sgraffito technique. The flow of the lines was inspired by the Aurora Borealis. It was constructed using a grogged crank clay body and was high fired in an electric kiln to 1260°C (Cone 8).
A painterly approach was taken with glazing each sphere; there is a base of turquoise gloss with splashes of red & navy gloss, white crawl glaze and dry turquoise.
Each piece is unique; dimensions may vary as will the glaze finish.
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Would suit a commercial, residential, garden, water feature or public setting. Installation costs are not included.
