Verglas #2 (2021)


With Andy Goldsworthy’s Ice Spiral as the prompt for The Kick-About No. 42, I set about producing my own much smaller-scale installations in the bottom drawer of my freezer.

Over the course of a few days, I foraged a number of interesting bits to freeze inside blocks of ice, including this umbellifer, a dill plant maybe, or parsnip from my husband’s allotment that was allowed to flower impressively.

The internal fractures, frostings and imperfections of the ice make for some interesting effects, not least the way some of them recall mountainous terrains.
