Art Description

Installation: Mosaic, Found Objects, Ceramic, Glass and Environmental on Ceramic, Glass, Other and Iron.

“Fruits of the Thames”, 2016. Ceramic, glass, mirror, bones, XVIc pipes, iron, fossil, stones, plastic and millefiori on wooden board, direct method (35x35cm). Made with the ‘treasures’ found mudlarking along the Thames, apparently now one of the cleanest metropolitan rivers in the world, but which used to be regarded as London's garbage bin. Thames mud is anaerobic and preserves whatever it consumes, which makes its shore one of the richest archaeological sites in the country. 98% re-used material.
