Terra Firma Leaky Boat

130 ceramic hands gather around hoping to get onto a leaky boat (a reclaimed wheelbarrow from my local wood).  This work was made in response to the Eco refugee crisis that the world faces. The majority of the hands were made in unglazed single fired brown, black and white clay, but a few are taller and glazed in bright colours – these represent hope.

Film of the hands set to the sound of waves 

One large, craggy hand holds a blue glass sphere represents our fragile planet whilst tall, brightly glazed hands guide us through the crowd. Both signify hope.
