Through investigative practice and a personal connection, the work considers history, memory and loss associated with a post-industrial landscape in 'The Potteries'. As nature starts to reclaim the land 'What Remains' acts as both a statement and a question. Contemplating raw materials extracted by man, and fragments recovered from the earth, along with personal objects, evidence acts as traces, offering only a partial picture of the past. The work balances the known with the mystery of the unknown, and references the infinity of time through the recurring cycle of life and nature, pointing to hope, new beginnings and the future.
