Stormwater in glass vessel, with Soay wool sleeve and wooden plinth.

Stormwater (2015)

This small installation took many weeks of preparation. A glass vessel holds water from the Mersey collected during the Spring storms of 2015. The anger within is then cosseted in genuine Soay sheep yarn beautifully crocheted by Jean Emerson, and the whole bonded with a ruble and sealed by 1792 Liverpool conder token.

Stormwater is an atavistic piece which attempts to constrain something of the wildness that sculpts St Kilda still. I owe much to inspiration from Steve Dilworth here.
