Burdon Moor Butterflies and Dragonflies
2011
Stoneware ceramic
Approx. 15cm each

Gateshead Council commissioned Kay to create a piece of public artwork for Burdon Moor (2004), a plot of land previously used agriculturally, which was purchased by the council to turn it back into traditional moorland. She applied small ceramic pieces – butterflies, dragonflies and wildflowers – to two boulders, representing flora and fauna that will eventually populate the moor.

Kay recreated the dragonflies and butterflies for the rear elevation of the house.
