Not Yet by Paul SpoonerA new limited edition from Paul Spooner.

“Another piece that exploits the attractive/repulsive effects of neodymium magnets. The handle turns a cylinder in which a magnet is inserted radially so that its poles alternate, causing a magnet buried in the fish to feel attracted or repelled by turns. The foil, which is pure tin and beautiful stuff in its own right, stops the fish from becoming airborne.

I didn’t think of a title until I was half-way through making the batch. When I was at art school there was a kiln in the pottery on which the tutor often chalked; “NOT YET” to stop people opening the door too soon. If I don’t admit to not knowing quite why this piece has the same title, some people might think that it represents some deep thought about time and existence.

Finishing them on Remembrance Day, and having to date-stamp them 11/11/11 will only add to the suspicion that I’ve started taking myself too seriously”.
