Heath to Sea


Heath To Sea

July-August 2016

9 days walking the Ridgeway and Icknield Way. Inspired by the imagined journey of a  prehistoric axe, discovered in a Somerset peat bog. The axe was made of jadeite, quarried in the foothills of the Alps, and offered into the water of Shapwick Heath over almost 6,000 years ago.

Funded by the Jeanne Szeago Bursary, The Slade School of Art.
