See Shells and Climate Change

22nd February - 29th March 2019

Exhibition opening Friday 22nd February, 5-7pm

A collaborative project by ceramic artist Jake Boex, climate scientist Professor James Scourse and Phil Dyke (National Trust Coast and Marine Advisor), this exhibition explores our emotional reaction to climate change. One thousand porcelain bowls act as data points showing the changing temperatures of the North Atlantic Ocean over the last millennium. Each bowl is marked with a specific year and is coloured, red to blue, by glaze made in part from the seashells that provided the data. Laid out like a mandala, the evidence illustrates our interconnection with natural processes.
