Flowers of Basalt

KALEIDOSCOPE

Sulphur occurs in natural deposits on the edges of volcanoes and is known as Brimstone. A useful description for the volcanic convulsions of this Hebridean Basalt and the hellish atmosphere of the cliffs. When the sulphurous vapours condense on the colder surfaces of the rock around the crater of a volcano, they look like lichens. Under a microscope the crystals resemble flowers and are called “Flowers of Sulphur”.

On the rocks and cliffs of the Shiant Isles they radiate out from tightly packed warts to lacy extremities festooning the cliffs. Using all the different cliff faces, rocks, tidal areas and sea water colours I have made the “Flowers of Basalt”.
