Eyjafjalla Waking


first image   sculpture 1

Iceland. Land of ice and fire. Situated as it is on the mid-Atlantic ridge, Iceland experiences volcanic activity on an average of every five years. Eyjafjalla is a relatively small volcano.

Fire within the earth, fire melting rock, fire welling up from under the ice: fire defines the Icelandic landscape. My experiences in Iceland, as I return year after year to horse-trek with Sagnaslod   through the incredible volcanic and glacial terrain, are beginning to inform much of my work in clay. The elemental combinations of earth, water, air and fire in the ceramic process speak directly of the age old and continuing formation of our earth.
