Place of Seven – Seven Pots adrift in the Irish Sea

POS1-banner

This is a piece about the human relationship to landscape and seascape, the movement of people and the mingling of societies. It also builds on current themes in my work about movement and change within the environment.

I wasĀ asked to create an exhibition centredĀ around a film forĀ Aberystwyth University Ceramics Collection
and it is in part based on the Legend of Tresaith.

ā€œWhen a King of Ireland had seven troublesome daughters, he decided to cast them away in a boat without sails. The currents carried them east and they came ashore upon a Welsh beach. They were rescued shortly afterwards by seven local farmers, with whomĀ they fell in love, and married. The place was named Tresaith, the ā€˜Place of Sevenā€™, for each of the troublesome daughters who made it their home.ā€

Seven ceramic vessels wereĀ set adrift at 8:15pm on Sunday the 5th of June 2017Ā from Wicklow onĀ the East coast of Ireland. The hope is that they reach the west coast of Wales.

You can follow the vesselsā€™ progress live on thisĀ linkā€¦

Some explanation of the tracking page. Each vessel is represented by the different colours (Orange, blue, green, turquoise, yellow and purple) unfortunately only 6 seem to be working hence only six colours. The pins and numbers show the most recent ā€œmessagesā€ from the tracking devices. I was advised that the pots would move north and south with each tide and that the wind would be the main factor in moving them eastward towards Wales. This seems to be correct as the vessels are indeed zig zagging their way across.
