Crunchy Bat terracotta woodlouse
Made out of raw terracotta clay from the local clay fields exposed by new housing construction sites.
I 'liberated' a few plant pots worth of soil from one of the site just to see what plants would grow in soil that would otherwise be buried under someone's new house. When I took one of these plants into the studio for a crit and watered it three woodlice popped out of the bottom and, over the next three weeks, they lived in my installation and I became quite fond of them. I took the plant pot home after and they might still be living in my garden.
