This work reflects the defects that occur within the fabric as it ages and incurs damage from existence. Every piece of material has started out on a different journey but now the scars and marks of that time are accented and become part of the beauty. The ground and polished slate is pieced together and then waxed to highlight the beautiful tones. The fused glass sections colour the light as it passes through, while the veteran yard post has been torched and then treated with linseed oil to both preserve and accentuate the texture.
