Life big pneumatic hammers made in clay

For the 2005 St Etienne design biennale I molded  these pneumatic hammers on a real one, as a hommage to the miners. They dig out minerals which are then transformed to become the colours we use on our products, in particular céramics. These céramic hammers are enameled in chrome, lead, zinc, cadmium and cobalt.

The mold counts 36 pieces and is a masterwork on its own.
