This painting is by Lorna Graves whose rich and diverse artistic output included, as well as painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Most of her work is on a small scale intended for the domestic environment. Her symbolic sculptures (mostly made of earthenware and smoke-fired using the Japanese raku process) dominate her work. Her aim as an artist was to produce work of great simplicity. It expresses her deep interest in the spiritual, the natural world, her native landscape and ancient civilisations. She empathised with the ancient and natural landscape, especially of her native Cumbria having grown up on various farms in North Cumbria where she worked with animals and helped with the harvest. She became aware of the natural rhythms of life from an early age.
