This project was a response to the geology archive at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, looking specifically at the coal fossils from the Black Country in collaboration with geologist Chris Broughton. The work was made during a residency at Wolverhampton University and some pieces were included in ‘The Riches Beneath Us’ exhibition at Bilston Craft Gallery, and ‘Temporal Permanence’ at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
