C2 - Fairchild - Metaphysics (checklist draft 1)

This small sculpture is made from crumpled paper and aluminum foil coated in resin. One end of the sculpture is blue, the other a brown-red, and the center is silver.  Pieces of paper which look like newsprint are stuck to the bottom of the sculpture. The piece is deceptively light.

<br />
Produced between the 15th and 16th century at a privately owned kiln in the southwestern region of Gyeongsangnam-do, this bowl has been restored following breakage into ten pieces. Its rim curves inwards. It is made with stoneware clay. There are five spur marks on the inner base, and the glaze on the rim of its foot has been wiped away. It is coated with opaque white glaze, on which have formed many crackles and pinholes. The color of glaze is not even throughout the surface. Vessels of this type were popular in Japan as tea bowls (茶碗, Jap. chawan).<br />
