The applicable measurements are virtually unrestricted. Parts of sculptures, moulded to about seven metres high, are skillfully cut to pieces and then excavated, numbered, fired, glazed, baked once more and reasssembled at the chosen location. Every placement is unique and demands skill. Struktuur 68 closely collaborates with expert construction and transport firms. Realising small sculptures, painting dishes, small wares, turn and cast work are other possibilities. A large assortment of different kinds of clay and more than 5000 glazes – each in many structural variations – are at the service of the artist. The execution of several tests is standard procedure.
