Aqua Geode

Pencil on paper

This tonal handmade drawing, ‘Aqua Geode’, was made by artist Kate Ive in her Edinburgh studio.

It is inspired by the strength and beauty of nature to recover and reclaim the landscape. This is the first stage in the process of making a sculpture on the same theme. Kate has created this delicate tonal drawing exploring how nature claims and re-purposes our detritus. Nature finds innovative ways to hide our traces and impact.

In this tonal handmade drawing, ‘Aqua Geode’, barnacles have grown over a plastic lid. They cover the inside of the lid, like shining geode crystals. They hybridise our plastic waste creating new landscapes of the future.

The handmade bronze sculpture created from this drawing, ‘Aqua Geode’ can be found under the ‘Sculpture’ tab.
