My work explores the true aesthetic of clay, using beautiful and smooth, slip cast, porcelain forms to represent a pure, untouched human body. My pieces consist of various experiments showing the effects tobacco materials have on clay, specifically how they manipulate porcelain and form. The aim was to create a contrast between beautiful clean objects, with damaging effects caused by processes using tobacco products, promoting ‘the ‘dematerialization’ of the art object as a defining factor’. My fundamental feature of conceptual art is using creative processes combined with the physical material to create a conceptual understanding of the deterioration of clay and form. To create a visual language through a series of forms, creating awareness that the more cigarettes you smoke, the more it effects your body, promoting how your body repairs itself overtime by giving up the habit.
