Souvenir. October 2021. Unfired terracotta, south coast.
I have been attempting to find ways for the landscape to ‘lead’ the process of making, and to make in a way that is conscious of giving– rather than taking– from a landscape. SOUVENIR is made up of nine tiles of terracotta clay, which I took with me, still damp, on a three-hour walk down the south coast beaches. The tiles are marked with the impression of different rock faces I passed as I walked.
