About Anthropocene Wave

Anthropocene Wave evokes the natural forces of the wild Atlantic Coast in North Devon and the geology of the landscape. It addresses Harriet’s concerns with the precariousness of the human condition, the fragility of the earth and the detrimental effect of the human on the natural environment.

“Thinking about the engagement of time and the natural forces of the sea on the geology of the landscape, the work is multi-fired with layered glazes until I intuitively feel the work is finished.” Harriet Hellman
