Terra Cotta #1

 

The pieces in this series were made of sand and flour, and baked in a domestic oven. Their creation was motivated by the desire to explore a simpler world, which is devoid of the numerous possibilities offered by contemporary technology. For this project, Talia chose to work with materials and techniques that are considered basic in the modern world. She was inspired by communities in desert climates, which make use of available raw materials to produce everyday objects. The result is a series composed of unique individual containers.
