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 be left at the top of Carn Treliwyd to weather away. Made from the earth it will return to the earth. In my work I am inspired by landscape and I have placed this Jar to venerate its surrounding.

Over the next few weeks I will be documenting the disintegration of the Jar as the wind and rain slowly return the form to clay.

I will be posting things of interest and inspiration as I go.
