I've been revisiting pieces from the archive in preparation our exhibition Portrait of Place this October.
The Swiddens of heather on the moor top are a strong feature of the land management of the heather moorland. Though a contentious practice, and one I really don't enjoy living with, the marks made by burning the heather are distinctive and I do find them quite beautiful.
The overlaying of burn and growth are something that lends itself to glass beautifully. I take away layers of coloured glass, eroding the surface, to make the overlay of colour and light.
