The Prehistoric Seed series is a collection of micro-sculptures playfully creating a variety of imaginary, fossilied seed pods.
The Prehistoric Seed series is crafted from four different types of clay: terracotta crank, Vulcan black stoneware, speckled stoneware and white stoneware and utilise Nichrome wire for the attachments. In some sculptures, the clays have been textured using a variety of scottish beach pebbles and pottery tools to resemble pumice, corals and wave-worn sedimentary rocks. In others, Scottish beach sand has been pressed into the surface. This Sackbut Seed features a white stoneware clay base pressed with beach sand and a white stoneware seed with tin white glaze.
