    ‘but perhaps i can infer something of their lives

    reconstructed in this scatter of discarded stone’

    (Stranger in the Mask of a Deer)


    Debitage is a series of artworks produced to accompany The Giving Way, a long poem that looks back to the ‘interstitial life’ of Late-Upper Palaeolithic Europe. The term debitage itself refers to the scatter of’ waste’ flakes generated when making stone tools.


    Monochrome reproductions of six of the collages were featured alongside the poem in a booklet published by Guillemot Press in 2022.


    The original artworks are now for sale for the first time, produced in an beautiful edition comprising a black card enclosure featuring the Corbel Stone Press sigil.
