The Bath Spa Porthleven Prize
In May 2013 I did a 10 day residency in Porthleven, Cornwall as a part of the Bath Spa Porthleven Prize.
These concrete pieces were made in response to the abundance of concrete found in the fishing village's infrastructure and as a counter reaction to the town's rich history in mining for natural materials. The Historic Harbour is reinforced with concrete as its taken a battering from all the rough seas and stormy weather. Porthleven has seen many a shipwreck in its surrounding waters and so there are many legends and folklore surrounding the town making it an eery sort of place.
