Creating the Installation

The project culminated on Saturday 9th September 2017 as part of Totally Thames, with thousands of clay casts being laid out on the foreshore at low tide to recreate the Mason Stair Causeway.

This causeway was a ferry point, taking people and goods, to and from industrial Bankside for more than four hundred years. The casts, moulded into the shape of objects found in the Thames, were washed away by the rising tide. This referenced ancient traditions of ritual giving, meaning that these objects which are so often taken from the foreshore were given back to the river.
