No Sense of Humor

August 2003
Pasadena, CA

Seventy, ash-glazed, stoneware 
pieces (14 inches each),
copper and steel cable.

Gallery area:
10 by 12 by 15 feet.

This piece dealt with space, weight and tension.  It is the most physically challenging project I have done so far.  Each piece was 10 pounds each on average, so essentially I had to figure out how to suspend about 700 pounds of ceramics in the middle of the gallery space.
