This work was made for an exhibition in an old sake factory at the last stage of a residency in Shiro Oni Studio, Japan.
A thin cotton fabric is suspended outside of a door opening in the room, and there is a wooden plate lying on the floor below, covered until the edge with approximately 3 litres of water. Above this, there is a ceramic container filled with ice cubes, that slowly drip down on the water surface. The viewer is invited to sit down on a bench on the other side of the room, and from this position, the wooden plate forms the shape of a moon.
During the residency, we fired a traditional anagama kiln for 3 days and 3 nights,
and the ceramic container is a result of this process.
