This work is a celebration of nature and an expression of my love for her. 
Touch the earth explores human connection to nature and started in the summer of 2020 when I spent time living outside in the North Devon biosphere. 
I felt my perspective change as I began to walk barefoot over the land. I realised that the physical touch of my naked feet on the Earth was in a sense also both an emotional and spiritual connection. This led to the development of the process of Earth casting; literally pouring molten metal on the surface of our planet. As the metal flowed, it captured energy and movement creating unpredictable organic forms. I Wanted the pieces I made to mirror the connection of walking barefoot and to act as amulets or talisman to safeguard us in this worrying concrete world.

Solid lava shows a record of the journey it took when molten and partly inspired the development of this experimental process.

pouring molten metal into the earth, capturing not only its organic textures but a moment in time.
