All I See

These days I’m tuned into the green – there’s no tuning out. I’m looking for the continuum, the mosaic of habitats weaving their way through the city. I’m calculating the losses and gains with every glance. Spilt hedge, newly paved drive, weed wildflower, lawn left long, bare wall where the bramble scrambled.

I’m firing less and raw-ing more, capturing my sculptures with the camera before they become ceramic. This, a composite of two faces and many flowers; raw clay synonymous with the soil.  

We’ve always been super connected – we’ve just forgotten that it’s a soil-bound, a tree-bound, an earth-bound connection.
