Side View…one of my favourites

Ceramic wall sculpture - 'The Space In Between' by Michelle Maher. Shown here at Sculpture in Context 2017 at The National Botanic Gardens in Dublin. It is inspired by the microscopic world of plant cells – in particular, vascular bundles in plant stems. Consisting of 106 pieces it was hand built in a cranked clay body and high fired in an electric kiln to 1260 C.
