Cross Section Intriguing use of object sensitivity and interplay of interior and exterior surface from Wetherall, whose ceramic objects direct a sense of shape ‘cut’ into to reveal a cross-sectional diagram brought into sculptural relief. The object is formed and cast based on an emotional relationship to anatomical organs — this piece indicative of the top quarter of a pair of lungs and a metaphorical urge for air and space to survive — then carefully illustrated with a series of underglazes that renders layered visual information in the style and obsessive detail of 18th century medical etchings. http://hieronymusobjects.com/content/images/thumbs/0017716_cross-section_1.jpeg Mallory Wetherell
