‘And the Rain came’
is an installation of ceramic items which creates a visual comment on the current environmental changes which are taking place in our planet.
In this work I am using ceramics and other media to create an installation commenting on the current climatic change we are experiencing here in the UK and elsewhere. I first made a piece of work called “Global Warming’ in the 1980s, informed by research based on Greenpeace documents. However the melting off the ice-caps is now alarmingly obvious and has resulted in colossal amounts of rain creating huge floods and devastation in parts of this country. These warnings are something which, like Noah’s story in the bible, we need to take seriously in order to preserve our infrastructure and sea defences.
