Object of the week

While the Pathfoot Building is closed, the Art Collection will each week focus on some objects of interest. You can also search our entire collection online here.

Floating Stones
Lotte Glob
(Ceramic, 2008)

Originally from Denmark, Lotte Glob arrived in Scotland during the 1960s. Living and working as she does in the remote far north of Scotland, her ceramics are imbued with the beauty of the natural landscape. These floating stones were part of a project which involved releasing three ceramic stones into 111 lochans in the Scottish Highlands. In the following film, Lotte talks about the development of this idea.

The Secret of the Swimming Stones

The Art Collection is fortunate to have some other objects created by this artist.

Fragment of the Land by Lotte Glob
(Ceramic, 2007)

‘Fragment of the Land’, seen above, is described by the artist as ‘an important piece in my ceramic and installation work’. And the work shown below is ‘Birdbath’ which was also featured in our blog piece a few weeks ago about the Oystercatcher courtyard where it is situated.

Dr. Inall, a surgeon at Stirling Royal Infirmary).

Here is another short film in which Lotte talks in 2018 about her recent work.
