Using mainly discarded or found objects as a starting point, Daisy Freestone creates refined, hand- cast, sculptural vessels which include found and foraged natural materials suspended within Jesmonite - an environmentally low impact, composite material consisting of a natural mineral stone and water-based binder.
Each piece encapsulates and is characterised by materials collected from the natural landscape. These materials - sand, slate and shell from North Cornwall - inhabit the vessels and imbue them with a texture and memory of their place of origin. The ethos behind the work and the textures contained within the pieces invoke a different connection with each viewer; through touch, an interest in the environmental aspect, or the impression or memory of a particular place.
