"Infestation" at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Mutated forms of porcelain insects glazed in gorgeous colors, some burnt, some shimmering with gold, awaited us in the stairwell at Yorkshire Sculpture Park outside Barnsley last weekend.
Anna Collette Hunt creates her installations for a variety of venues, including stately homes and Nottingham Castle.  Click on her name for photos of how she does it.

Like their real-life counterparts, they gravitate toward corners and light sources

and no two are the same.

Originally installed in Nottingham Castle

Their swirly patterns are beautiful from afar, and equally beautiful up close:
