A Night of Rain

Posted by | Earth to Earth, Land Art, Research Grant, Tme Lapse | October 23, 2011

  Seven days of waiting and watching every change in the weather and this is what I found on Sunday morning. 20,000 images and the disintegration of the Jar happened in the dead of night, unable to be seen by the camera. The footage is amazing but what an anticlimax to have missed the defining […]

Earth to Earth – The experience

Posted by | Earth to Earth | June 29, 2010

As an artists who claims to be inspired by the landscape I am often critical of myself for not getting out and drawing more strongly on my inspirations. The discipline of spending forty minutes walking through the landscape looking in a meaningful way has been insightful and uplifting. Giving oneself a reason, a purpose, like […]

Earth to Earth – A few hours later

Posted by | Earth to Earth | June 08, 2010

By nine o’clock at night this is all that was left of my Moon Jar. The wind and rain had in a single day reduced the pot to little more than a pile of soggy shards. The foot ring of the Jar was the all that remained. Up there the weather was really wild, standing […]

Earth to Earth – The first rain

Posted by | Earth to Earth | June 07, 2010

The anticipation to see what effect the first rain had had on the unfired clay was motivating as I climbed the hill. From afar it was still in its entirety, a sphere against the laden sky. The Jar was wet through on one side, the side that had taken the weather.  Drops of rain had […]

Earth to Earth – A Wall Brown

Posted by | Earth to Earth, Uncategorized | June 05, 2010

Just below the summit of Carn Treliwyd is a field of bluebells. Today as I tramped my way through them each step sent flying a myriad of insects, among them Damselflies and a Wall Brown Butterfly. I took a different route to the summit and came across another line of quartz leading directly to the […]

Earth to Earth – Quartz lines

Posted by | Earth to Earth | June 05, 2010

Nearing the top of Carn Treliwyd I found these lines of quartz. Ancient routes through the rocks that shape our landscape. How we use and experience a landscape is of constant interest to me.  One of the ways that shapes our experiences is the routes we take. paths are like common routes of experience, a […]

Earth to Earth on Carn Treliwyd

Posted by | Earth to Earth | June 03, 2010

My second attempt at this project after the previous Jar was taken from the top of Clegyr Boia. A new more remote location this time on top of Carn Treliwyd. I have made a Jar from a blend of local clays, some from the moor below at Waun Llodi. This raw, unfired jar is to […]
