Brickworks. An extended body of 8 sculptures made from a single, large set of miniature, hand-made fired clay bricks, each 4cm x 2m x 1cm. Most of the works are conceived as ephemeral pieces, built on-site and broken up after exhibition, the bricks salvaged and re-used in new works. Two works, Jug and Chimney have reached a final ‘resolved’ form and are now permanently sited in London and Aarhus. As such, the separate sculptures link together over time as a family of pieces, formed from the same physical material and containing residual evidence of their former states. Most sculptures take the form of simple architectural structures such as stells (sheepfolds), buttresses or chimneys.
