Veneration Bell – The Making Of

I really love this short video by Adam Buick showing the making of his Veneration Bell.  In his words:

This film gives some background into the creation of my latest artwork, Veneration Bell

I made a series of porcelain Veneration Bells and hung them in sea caves around the coast of Pembrokeshire. Once in position the bells were filmed at different states of tide and sound recordings were made of the sea crashing against the cave walls and the bell chiming. Bells are a universal symbol of the sacred. The placing of them is a homage to nature and draws attention to the beauty of the surrounding landscape. First exhibited for the 2013 Jerwood Makers Open as an installation, the work aims to bring the significance of nature back into the gallery.

There are other short videos on the Adam Buick Vimeo Channel.  Do take a look.  Fab, huh?
