I figured out I had to make 12 “pyramids” each in 6 sizes. 72 pieces all together. Will there be enough time? When I assemble them will the sculpture look the way I imagine it in my mind?
There is only one way to find out... so I started making.
 I used relatively coarse handbuilding clay and covered it with porcelain slip, for whiteness and texture. I love using slip that way, although the process is quite messy.
My first impulse was to leave them white, but as I was making them I decided to glaze them in colours of local rocks - iron reds and ochre.
