Pernicious is a collection of 30 glazed ceramic pieces , installed in the ground using steel rods. Each piece is constructed with hundreds of “fingerprints”- vigorously squeezed pieces of clay. Varying sizes and complexity. Pernicious has been installed in R.H.S. Harlow Carr, Wentworth Castle H[Gardens and most recently at the Fresh Air Sculpture Show , 2022 . Although the pieces resemble growing plants ,their whiteness appears bonelike, dead-looking, reflecting our precarious and voracious relationship with the natural environment.
