Crossed Paths - Salt and Earth

This landscape drawing across Snape Warren is a fictional representation of the route from the ancient salt works opposite Iken Point to the Anglo-Saxon burial grounds at Snape Common. Children at local schools helped make the ‘briquetage’ cones - low fired red clay vessels used when evaporating saline water over a fire to get salt. Once installed the work will be left to deteriorate into the landscape, as has the ancient salt workings activities.
