Salt of the Earth

Sculpture and Installation
Dumfries and Galloway.

A self initated project exploring object-making using materials sourced as locally as possible, and considering the transient nature of consumer objects. Materials used included silt from the Solway Firth, river clays and salt gathered from the Solway and Irish sea.

The objects, photographs and film material were exhibited alongside painted text works identifying each material used.

Work exhibited at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries (2013), CALDEWGATE closing show, Carlisle (2014), Green Hill Gallery, Berlin (2015) and Spring Fling Open Studios (2015).

Project supported by South of Scotland Visual Art and Craft Maker Award.
