River Placement


An assemblage of seed heads, allium, thistles, grasses. Taken from the edgelands of Barnes Meadow in Northampton, to be re-situated after a storm at the source of the River Avon, near Naseby, Northamptonshire.

With this assemblage, I have added a kora incantation – “river courses into cloud, raw, elemental, a mighty arc, wild, ashen, fielding intangible narrow throat- sweeping, scouring.” from a new text piece entitled Hyperborea.

Following on from work recently published as Laments and Incantations, this assemblage of seed heads is the completion of a cycle..returning words to the landscape that begat them. Here they will decompose, and re-seed the land at the source of the river.
