EMILY CONNELL I Kansas City, Missouri
Gideons Orange Pocket New Testament Psalms Proverbs Bible 1985 King James, 2017

porcelain, faience, ashes of a book, gypsum

Using discarded books of reference, I paint each page in porcelain. Firing the book in a kiln transforms it into a reliquary shell, ashes contained. I then use a saw to reveal the cross section of the constructed fossil. It is placed back into an open, active, and abstract position.

Pricing is the sale price of the piece ONLY and does not include taxes and shipping costs. Shipping costs will be determined in consultation with the artist.
