public_access_description
Richard Slee (born 1946) ‘Sausage’ 2006 Strapped to a handyman’s folding workbench, Richard Slee’s ‘Sausage’ appears a comic and surreal object. Its shiny white surface and oversized form create a cartoonish fantasy. Slee’s work frequently plays with everyday items in ways that make them seem larger than life. Here, the sausage and workbench suggest male enthusiasms. Made in Brighton White-glazed earthenware, hand-built, with workbench and elastic straps Museum no. C.78:1 to 5-2007 Acquired through the generosity of Gerard and Sarah Griffin
