Lined Spiral

LIned-spiral, originally uploaded by escher1.

Around Morecambe bay there are lots of rocks with bands of quartz through them and I had in mind for a while that I wanted to create a spiral with a line continuing around the spiral made of the quartz bands running through each rock. I collected the rocks on the shore at Lytham and on the beach at Morecambe and the rocks had been in a plastic bag clogging up the house for a couple of weeks before I finally had enough to complete the spiral. I put them next to the cliffs at Humphrey Head after clearing and flattening the surface of the sand and left them there.
