Ceramic

Ceramics, wood, steel, audio technology
24W x 90H x 24D

The heart of Ceramic is a large hand-thrown clayware bell surrounded by five smaller ones. Motion of the bells against one another generates unique sounds within each bell that are recorded as they occur. All bells rotate on their central axis; flywheels are driven by an electric motor generating their motion.
