Penny Choate

Imposing my Order on Nature, Clay, bark, gravel and linen.


This works inspiration came from some bark naturally lined up in a quite orderly manner a bit beyond this depression. I have just made a more orderly pattern using all natural materials which can be - and are meant to be - resumed by nature.

Even the very proper linen cloth and tea - cup (unfired hand - built clay made by Liz Williams) will soon decompose.

I hope my order is at ease with nature who has, by the way, already had her say in decomposing this work in a recent rain -storm. It just happened a bit sooner and more violently than I had envisaged, but still in time for me to rebuild with a little help from my friends

Donald Richardson

Egg, Recycled timber, 2000

Wood is a natural organic material, but milling and planing it for use in industry necessarily gives it an inorganic form.

In my sculpture, traditional carpentering techniques are used to make visual metaphors of natural organic forms out of recycled, processed building timber.
