Following a longer than intended absence (mainly due to a concentrated period of writing, oh and a holiday!) I’ve started to think about producing new work. For a variety of reasons I’ve found myself drawn to the idea of creating contrived plastiglomerates from the detritus of everyday life. Plastiglomerates are the new material forms that have been emerging where geological forces have combined with waste materials (in places such as Hawaii) to produce new rock forms incorporating glass, plastics, sand and rocks in new lava flows. This piece started within a box of miscellaneous items from a house clearance sale, objects left over from a life, bound together and subject to the relentless reconfiguring powers of nature.
