Levelling Traditions. Somerset, UK.
Make’s second exhibition entitled ‘Levelling Traditions’ brings together nine artist-makers united by an intimate understanding of material. Each was invited to create original works to interpret themes of rural life and traditions, the land, the domestic and the intimate – a world in which materials, people, place and process have been so closely intertwined.
This project references traditional fishing baskets, traps, and lobster pots. I have drawn on this vibrant history to create a collection of objects which stand together with a sense of community, a tradition on the brink.
