RIVER DULAIS – 2010
Bronze, gramophone speaker, stone, resin and sound 160 x 70cm
This is a series of objects made after removing a
particularly beautiful stone from a Welsh river bed. I made hollow resin and bronze casts of this stone. The resin form became a container suggesting that the solid stone had become a bottle carrying the water it was originally found in (and formed by), away from its source. The recorded sound of the river is drawn out of the bronze stone through the speaker and into the air, as if the stone has a memory; suggesting an energy, which is being released by the stone or held within the membrane of the bronze.
