Click the image and zoom for a closer look.
This giant 3D printed porcelain sculpture's arms have softened and twisted downwards while inside the kiln, only to re-solidify moments before it would have fallen over.
The process froze a moment of fall and disintegration, making it look implausible, like a standing piece of cloth. At the same time it looks loose, shiny, and translucent, like a tranquil porcelain seaweed.
