Here we see a ceramic piece that shows a nesting group of sausage-link, snake-like forms. In a New York Times article, Nick Stillman refers to Price's surfaces as emitting a "paranormal glow". Numerous layers of paint are laid down in carefully determined sequence and then abraded to achieve this surface. There is an incredible uniformity to this manufactured weathering, and something tells me that it is the sanding that is the trickiest part of making these.
