    About The Work

    Like each issue of THE THING, this set of six hand-made ceramic dice (made by Oakland-based ceramic studio Atelier Dion) and custom dice-carrying bag are meant to be used. Designed by artist David Korty, the piece includes instructions for the game “Mr. Natural,” which has spread quickly throughout Los Angeles. Korty has said: “The game is a simple one, best played amongst good friends and with as much banter and trash-talking as possible. A nice big table on which the dice can really roll makes the game even more exciting. The more I’ve played this game, the more it’s triggered my pondering ideas of chance vs. will, luck vs. skill, and other types of ‘meta’ questions, brought on by experiences I’ve had while playing.… On a Mr. Natural binge, one might encounter virtually no end to observations and epiphanies, highs and lows, and triumphs and defeats.”
