These ceramic vessels were made in response to flotsam and jetsam found along a 25 metre coastal shoreline at Poppit Sands. This is an on-going site-specific cross-disciplinary project that will be exhibited at Oriel Myrddin Carmarthen in August – September 2020. The project began by collecting and studying small amounts of clay, rocks, seaweed and plastic from the beach, both cleaning the beach and keeping some plastic objects as souvenirs. This site-specific research project flowed between making ceramic vessels and studying the history, geology and ecology of the beach. The ceramic vessels represent both the beauty and pernicious nature of the found plastic objects. The vessels also aim to evoke the beauty, history, geology and ecology of a small section of Pembrokeshire coast, framed by a specific time and space.
