“Snowspire Stacks”.

by timpughartist


“Snowspire Stacks”,was created near Rowrah in West Cumbria in January 2016 inside an old disused platelayer Hut next to a disused railway track. I took advantage of a brief spell of snow to create a temporary installation of snowball stack spires arranged inside the window frame of the hut.The dark interior illuminated the delicately balanced arrangements to good effect but it was a race against time to complete the installation as the snow was thawing out quickly, resulting in the occasional collapse of a stack.I intend to create more temporary artworks in and around the platelayer hut with the space resembling a pop up gallery.
Quite a few dogwalkers and passers by were at first bemused and  interested in what I was doing ,stopping by occasionally to chat and take photographs.
