Ebb and Flow
A part of my practice is to take some of my work to the coast, using film to record my performative interactions with the unfired clay in the landscape.I physically layer the clay into a new narrative on the coastline, this offers a deliberate exchange, I return some days later to see if anything of the work has come back. Sometimes it has been transformed, ‘a gift from the sea’.
I take this work back to the studio and fire it, completing this alchemical exchange.
