This is the newest addition to my collection of avant garde 20th century dangerous stoneware. Not only does it have several really sharp edges, as only a master of the French school of existential ceramics could perfect, it has a tone stem, visible on the front-left component. When plucked, it chimes a wonderful ringing chime that is at once musical and slightly uncomfortable. This is one of the few works by d’Earth to comprise multiple components as well as multiple tones.
While I don’t know it for a fact, the rumor surrounding this work has it involved in a minor injury to Truman Capote’s right index finger while he worked on Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Reported in the press as a paper cut, the injury actually came from attempting to strum the piece too fervently. At least that’s what I heard.
