The Lost & Forgotten H⁴ Sculpture, Rediscovered

29 July, 2015

This never-to-be-finished piece slipped my mind until I recently came across some photos from 2005. It is seen here as raw, black stoneware clay (but totally dry and ready to be bisque fired) with white slip. But being a part of a broader series, I decided to include it in its in-progress state for a class critique. And lucky I took these photos because they are the only documentation of it. I can’t remember exactly what happened, but it was somehow destroyed before or during one of the firings.

I can’t recall the exact sources of the 4 different H’s used, but I believe they were all different weights and widths of Univers.

It was fairly large and heavy – the H’s were about 12 inches tall.
