Exploring the Concept of Innate Nurture

In 2010 I continued a previous exploration using fired clay combined with plant fibre. I wanted to work on the concept of womanhood and motherhood being almost 'out of our control' as women. The role of nurturing for the most part is innate.
I've created some rudimentary sculptural clay figures and some 'womb-like' vessels that incorporate these concepts and materials. I've also applied some 'mark making' to these 'wombs' illustrating my 'connection' to the land and previous work on aerial landscapes.
