I am in love with these perforated ceramics by Tony Marsh . What he says about them is so interesting:

“There is something ironic about taking a material like clay which is dense, opaque and ruled by gravity and then removing as much mass as possible, replacing it with light and creating forms that hover. It is addition by subtraction. The surface is coated with between 4 and 6 applications of a vitreous engobe. Light enters the surface of the work and refracts through the body of glaze.The work changes according to the ambient light of the environment within which it resides.”
