Michel Kuipers (NL) - plastic 'Cube Hill''
Michel Kuipers (NL), sculpture 'Cube Hill', hand-moulded, stoneware clay, glazed 'sections' are placed opposite rough matt-glazed 'hill walls'. Architectural squares in blue have been applied to the straight sides. The idea behind this sculpture is an imaginary (blue) cube that lies locked up like an archaeological treasure in a hill/mountain. Height 14.4 cm, width 18.8 cm, incised signature on underside, 1984.
The artist evidently deliberately did not allow the two parts - with the rocky walls to the outside - to join up completely. The intention is therefore to place the parts apart.
