Sealed Earth looks at how an artist’s work is valued in a monetary way. Every day for 1 financial year the artist squeezed clay in her hand, producing a number of pieces depending on the time of day. The numbers scratched in the bottom of each sculpture represent the number of pieces created on a particular day, and the date on which she made each piece.
