(OR SHOULD WE JUST LET IT FALL DOWN?)

Workhouse is made of 650kg of Clay-rich soil (loam) cast to the shape of a chimney stack, The sculpture was a labour intensive exercise, transporting the material and then stamping and ramming the earth into the cast. As the sculpture dried throughout its display cracks started to appear across the surface and large clods of earth started to fall from the sculpture. Workhouse was intended to occupy a dichotomy between display and decay, between labour and futility.
