2018. Liquid Earth will be a moving-image work based on a pottery clay workshop held over a week in August ’18. Participants gathered local clay from the coast around Ardmore in West Waterford and used plastic remnants washed-up on the shoreline as the basis from which to make plaster molds.
Over the week we used these molds and the gathered clay to test-out various useful forms which might be needed into the future. We were inspired to think expansively about the landscape and the materials and creatures who have moved through it by a visiting geologist, a naturalist and an archaeologist.
Liquid Earth was supported through the Waterford Rural Arts Network fund and by the Waterford Arts Office.
