Mary and Water 2021
 

Intrigued by the notion of things evidenced in the Cathedral structure, but no longer present, I identified two such sites that I wanted to make pieces for.  Hereford Cathedral graciously allowed me to to do this as part of my MA submission.

The first piece I designed was to go onto a wall plaque from which the original image had been removed, possibly during the Reformation.  I chose to make an image of Mary Mother of Jesus as I imagine her to be; to strong, determined woman.

The second piece was to go into a shallow hole cut into the top of a pillar of stone.  It looked as though it could contain water.  Water being a biblical theme and a current environmental issue it seemed appropriate.
