The Adventure Begins

We are setting out on a new adventure ..Alexander McQueen said “There is no better designer than Nature” This project really began in 2002 casting objects found on our smallholding, some excavated by our pigs…influenced by the work of Mark Dion, Rachael Whiteread, Cornelia Parker, Doris Salcedo, the Boyle Family and many others we began to explore or environment… we aim to bring the unseen into view and celebrate the unexpected detail in everything…our processes range from printmaking to mould making to casting in a variety of materials, including precious metals, cement, plaster, jesmonite, cold cast bronze and marble.  We will be running workshops and taking part in exhibitions over the following months.

We have set up an instagram account https://www.instagram.com/impressions.of.nature/ a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/impressionsofnature1/ and a website http://www.impressionsofnature.co.uk

Here are a few images of some of our pieces so far

Picasso said “Je Suis Le Cahier: I am my sketchbooks…”
