More Information

 Using a mobile furnace, Wheater produced a number of glass birds, selecting species that had a particular connection with each place and which, once complete, were thrown into the air and allowed to fall and smash.
The action was captured in beautiful photographs by David Lindsay. The exhibition features huge backlit images and artefacts from the project.
A fully illustrated book, funded by Arts Council England, Yorkshire, and published and supported by YSP, is available to purchase from the YSP shop priced £12.
