Maker's statement

This film was made to support the ice jewellery displayed in the Crafts Council gallery [during the Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts]. The ice is displayed on a mannequin hand with a drip bowl. A strong image, but one looses the sense/sensation ofice against flesh...These two short pieces of film illustrate the very temporary experience of ice pieces worn on flesh.
