This is a scaled down imprint of my right foot, made for an exhibition themed “voyage.”
I was remodelling our attic and the floor was quite dusty from sanding plaster from the ceiling. I lightly moistered a coloured paper and placed my foot on it. I scanned the resulting image and scaled it down to a size that would fit in the kiln of my friend Ada van Werkhoven.
I returned to the footstep theme in 2017 and made a series of bigger footprints, fitting in my new, bigger kiln. I glazed the new steps with a self developed glaze, ending up with a coarser appearance.
