Eilidh Guthrie, Anthropocene Babies

Eilidh Guthrie, Anthropocene Babies

10 x 10 x 12 cm, raku clay, wild clay and raku glaze, 2021

Eilidh explores humankind’s neglect of the natural world, focusing on the interlinked issues of plastic pollution and climate change. As well as polluting the ocean, making and incinerating plastic releases greenhouse gases and contributes to global warming. Eilidh often uses found materials, digging wild clay and physically places sculptures into the environment. Human forms are washed up on beaches or discarded in forests like abandoned plastic. As a reminder, that by abusing our environment we are abusing ourselves.  The beaches and woodlands in Kilcreggan form a source of inspiration and sites to photograph her creations.
