Stone Clouds

Selected from a body of  work produced in the studio between 2000 - 2002 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

With the exception of marble selected from Leadmore Quarry near Ullapool in the NW of Scotland, all the stone was gathered while walking in Aberdeenshire. Exploring the local landscape on foot searching for inspirational stones was central to my practice at this time.

The studio was close to my home 1000ft up from the nearest village and we were often in or even above the cloudline.


Grampian TV visited the studio to film an interview with me for a televised documentary which explored the affects of weather on human activity, entited, "Weather Permitting"
