Mendips AONB Residency

As Artist in Residence around Mendip Hills AONB I worked with stone carving, driftwood, fire sculpture and other media. Joining a weekly walking group, I introduced activities such as dowsing, beach-combing and sculpting. One week we wrote letters to people we wanted to speak to but couldn't; these were tied with ribbon and 'sent' in a fire. Brian wrote to his mother who he had not seen since he was 15.
