Mud Diamond 2009-2010

Mud Diamond by Elise Johnston
Mud Diamond 2009 - 2010


The work Mud Diamond explores ideas of value, scale, and desire. It plays with the notions of scarcity and abundance, and the effect these can have on the perceived value of something. 

Mud Diamond is constructed using press moulded terracotta clay. After firing the surface has been painted to resemble the facets of a diamond.

Dimensions: 330mm wide, 230mm deep each


Technical Information: 

Press molded stoneware and auto paint
