Touch the earth explores human connection to nature and started last summer when I spent time living outside in the north Devon biosphere. I felt my perspective change as I began to walk barefoot over the land. I realised that the physical touch of my naked feet on the earth was in a sense also both an emotional and spiritual connection. This led to the development of the process of Earth casting; literally pouring molten metal on the surface of our planet. As the metal flowed, it captured energy and movement creating unpredictable organic forms. I Wanted the pieces I made to mirror the connection of walking barefoot and to act as amulets or talisman to safeguard us in this scary concrete world.
