the stone texts

Stone_one

Followers of the blog might remember that in the Summer, Barrie worked for Mary Bourne and Ken Cockburn on a rather nice project called the Merkinch Circles. Barrie set some texts based on the results of a series of writing workshops and site visits to the new flood defences in Inverness.

As you can see, the circle poems written for the workshops have now been carved into stone and are located on the site.

Mary Bourne is a visual artist whose work explores mankind’s emotional, intellectual and physical relationships with the world we live in. Based in rural Moray in the North East of Scotland she works principally in natural stone, using a variety of techniques (carving, sandblasting, heat and polishing) to find subtle physical forms for poetic ideas. More information about her work can be found on her website: http://www.marybourne.co.uk/
