Are you a mammal?

Mammals Only is a series of ceramic works that act as artifacts of the mammalian empire. Drawing on Neolithic & local community centre techniques, the clay works are formed using simple coil/slab building with minimal glazing. Each vessel, stand and holder hosts mammal traces and trails gleaned from urban and wild territories of Wellington County. Works include Beaver chip, Chewed beaver stick, Squirrel footprint water and Horse’s shoe.
