Sculpture, by Mick Brettle
Add to album

This ceramic sculpture of grogged clay was made by the Scottish artist Mick Brettle in 1987.

The press-moulded sculpture of grogged clay with neph-syenite copper glaze and over-sprayed slips is based on an aerofoil wing form. The rolled slabs were assembled and hand finished with surform and carborundrum paper, polished, then sprayed with coloured slips.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
