This work was part of a curated exhibition 'Sequences and Cycles"of 5 ceramic artists from Central Australia. I used locally gathered materials to build with, termite mound, local clay, grasses, manure and recycled paper which I slaked in an old bath in the garden. Many friendly folk, some I knew some I didn't, offered to help mix these bath loads up, even the quite smelly manure ones, proving that playing with mud is a pretty innate thing. I left the forms as adobe structures to facilitate an easy recycling at some point. Recycled materials clay paper grasses cow manure bush fire termite mound mixtures,
