    About The Work

    Issue 29 is a porcelain egg cup by LA-based artist Ricky Swallow. The starting point for the object was the shaker peg, originally designed by Shakers to adhere to their guiding principals of simplicity, utility, and honesty.  As in all of his work, Swallow hand-constructed the original forms out of ordinary materials—cardboard, tape, and glue, in addition to the wooden pegs which were added to the objects as intuitive handles. The object relates to Swallow's recent sculptures in bronze, which draw on the intimate scale and materiality of domestic forms.
