Alchemic connections
2018

The viewer walks into a dark space behind a curtain where they are surrounded on all sides by objects mounted onto the wall; these objects are connected with unseen wires, they are their own ecosystem. The viewer is invited to touch copper plates interspersed with the objects, they become part of that ephemeral eco system. When touched some of the objects light up from behind. When each of the five copper plates has been touched every one of the objects is alight for thirty seconds before the viewer is again surrounded by darkness.

This Installation work is comprised of eighty individual circular forms with a hole in the centre. These pieces are comprised of raku fired ceramic, high fired porcelain, copper and volcanic black clay with porcelain slip detailing, some pieces contain resin and lichen in the centre.
