  • Catalogue Number: c983
  • Title: Armchair figure
  • Mark: None
  • Size: 16.5 cms high
  • Description:
    Ceramic sculpture modelled in white porcelain body of a  naked figure reclining in an armchair disturbingly suggesting that the figure is being consumed by the chair.  The piece is raw glazed and has been given a spongy coral-like texture in the firing which adds to the unsettling effect.
