CLAY WEAVINGS - STUDIO SKETCHES
Nov 1997 to May 2000

Angela joined Camberwell Art College as a BA Ceramics/Fine-Art student. Subsequently she continued to use porcelain clay, which when soft and flexible she squeezed into straps which were sometimes piled in layers, sometimes haphazardly laid down or woven to make 'nets', which dried and naturally cracked into smaller pieces which she would reuse and reassemble. In 2001 she made an important original public work from approx ## ##-litre boxes of these unfired fragments: "Economist Carpet".
