This installation is about the memory of a common garden potting shed. I love to plant seeds and watch them grow; especially that moment when all the little pots are neatly lined up, each with a thriving, growing seedling inside. Imagine if you could freeze that moment and allow it to become a visual memory, a ghost, or an apparition of that point in time. The shed measures 3 x 6ft and is painted to give an aged and weather-beaten look. Inside sits 72 porcelain “seedlings” glowing on an illuminated bench.

The work was shown at the Royal Scottish Academy as a selected installation for the Society of Scottish Artists and also at The Scottish Sculpture Park, Caol Ruadh.
