To celebrate Earth’s 2000 revolutions around the sun I decided to make a series of sculptures using 2000 elements in each work. These sculptures were made in various locations including wild beaches, volcanic vents and mountainsides. The natural materialsĀ used were found at each site and returned to the natural system from which they came.

The process of collecting and counting the 2000 items became a kind of mantra for Philippa and I as we progressed.

The series of 12 works was published as an international calendar and several of the works are available as limited edition prints.
