Each of the 16 parts of this painting is washed with a different mud from the marshes, mudflats and banks of the Stour in Suffolk, UK. I worked closely with local beekeepers, using wax from their beehives to coat the surface. The topographical contour lines of the same geographical area are then incised into the surface on a scale of 1:25,000.
