This fascinating fragmented tower of stacked ceramic ribs was created by South African artisans Gerhard Swart and Anthony Harris, who’ve made an international name for themselves by pushing the boundaries of ceramic expression with both humor and a passion for sculpture and function. Individually cast and assembled ceramic vertebrae. Measures 46″ with shade.”
