The Trickster

The Trickster

This is a ceramic sculpture I’ve made for the show I am having at my house as part of the Cornwall Open Studio event .
It would appear to me that Badgers take the form of a trickster figure in rural British life .
With in the TB debate they are seen as the cause of a great many ills in the fortunes of farmers . The truth of the matter does not seem to be resolved and ther are inaccuracies in both sides of the debate . My Uncle Dan , a Welsh hill farmer , used to believe they were responsible for many things like eating new born lambs and flattening fields of corn . They do of course live in the bowels of the earth , some where on the journey to hell and come out in the dark at a time when most of us are asleep . perhaps they live in our sub-conscious dreams , in a place we are not sure of .
