Copper has been utilised by craft-workers for approaching ten thousand years.

 

This new series of patinated copper objects are presented to the viewer on hand worked concrete blocks to teasingly evoke a sense of the mystery and excitement of archaeological finds; raising questions regarding their actual provenance, purpose and function.

For instance 'Ali Kosh Tell' suggests a find from Ali Kosh; a small Tell (an artificial mound formed from the accumulated refuse of generations of people living on the same site for hundreds or thousands of years) of the Early Neolithic period located in the Zagros Mountains of Iran. It's actual purpose is, however, left to the viewer to ponder.
