ceramic and string

I made these pieces using a combination of white earthenware and perle cotton. I was thinking about those pin pictures that were around in the 1970s, and how one might make them more three dimensional. I like stitching through ceramics because I usually think of stitching as something you do through a yielding material such as fabric, but ceramics are so hard and unyielding.

I would like to do more of this, but it does get a bit fiddly in the corners.
