Fragile shedworking

You would have to be quite careful to do any shedworking in Jeremy Hatch's treehouse. It is built from unglazed, slip cast, reinforced, porcelain. Here's what he says:
"My recent installations employ the cultural associations of porcelain to invoke a range of conflicting responses. In representing familiar childhood experiences, I seek to question the nature of nostalgia and the in/authenticity of memory. Occupying both social and solitary space, my sculpture is simultaneously monument and souvenir - a mnemonic device that awakens feelings of loss and longing."
Personally, I just think it's rather beautiful.
