Clinking shard carpet
At the beginning of all earthly existence was clay: the Big Bang. At the beginning of all human culture was clay – the first raw material extracted –and with it the creation myth, fire, the potter’s wheel, the wheel, storage, sedentarism, architecture, the design of living space.
The production and modulation of sounds and the modelling of earthenware are skills that are anchored in every culture on every continent. The artist duo ‘TONundTON’ synthesises these two themes under the title “Klang der Scherbenteppich” in the chamber kiln of the Ziegelhütte, the place of fire.
