Votive Jars

Posted by | Exhibiting, Land Art, Local materials, Votive Jar | January 07, 2015
Over the past few years I have been placing tiny Votive Jars out in the landscape as offerings to places that inspire me and hold significance within my work.   This is an idea that came out of reading through some of my old Archaeological literature from my time at university.  One area that particularly caught [...] Read More
