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
