About the work: Given that Psyche is believed to be primarily metallic, I am intrigued by what kind of deformation the surface would undergo when impacted by other objects in space. This piece for me explores what plastic deformation looks like in the context of a crater. To do this I constructed the form of the jar and then covered it in slip (a liquid clay), a very plastic material, and proceeded to impact the surface with various sized objects to create a crater like surface. Dimensions: 23″ x 16″
