Shetland Flora is a body of work Kay Aplin conceived in residence whilst at Scalloway Booth in Shetland in 2015, which resulted in an exhibition In A Shetland Landscape at Shetland Museum & Archives, a response to the Shetland landscape through ceramics and sound in collaboration with sound artist Joseph Young. Kay collected micro-flora growing underfoot and used a digital microscope to capture the initial images, which she translated into ceramic designs.

Title: Kidney Vetch, Yell quad
Medium: Oxidised porcelain
Dimensions: 40 cm square

These tiles are all unique. Can be hung on a wall with a fixing attached direct to the tile or available mounted on perspex with aluminium stand offs. There are a series of larger roundels consisting of assemblages some of which have been wood fired and some oxidised (fired in an electric kiln).
