Artist Description

This artwork was created from an air-drying clay medium rolled out to a paper-thin thickness to create a delicate bass relief sculpture. Using unusual sculpting tools such as toothpicks and needles, artist Jo Roets scores the damp surface with indents, holes, and incisions. Part of her creative challenge is to push the medium to its breaking point, encouraging it to warp in the process. This warping quality is unique to each artwork and unplanned.
