Description

Using materials which are typical in traditional art making such as ceramic and stone, this work is the closest that Alice Cattaneo has come to figuration, with the materials combining to form a sort of abstract portrait. The stability of the slate and ceramic are not quite enough to support the blown Murano glass, and so a thin cotton thread snakes around the perimeter of the work, both containing and supporting the elements in its grip.
