Soft Rock Ensemble

Rounded flint stones with holes, jumpers, socks, coiled wire.


This work is an ongoing experiment from 2017 assembling this type of beach stone into variable compositions.

Initially set on bases of playground rubber matting to protect surfaces from the impact and clatter of the stones as they were moved around.

In 2021, the work was evolved to explore a contrast of the hardness and coolness of the rocks with the outer layers of soft knitted coverings such as jumpers, hats and socks. The hard rocks can still be felt underneath to greater or lesser degrees.

Investigations included taking the composition possibilities vertical with the ability to attach the work to a wall.
