All the plants to be found in one square meter of chalk grassland at Gay's Farm, Branscombe, Devon on one day in June 2004.
Part of the 'Grass Beneath our Feet' project on three farms in East Devon, celebrating the diversity of unimproved grassland. Two of each plant species were picked, one for identification and one rolled into a porcelain slab and made into a butter dish. The plant burns out in the kiln leaving its image behind.
The process highlights what is growing beneath our feet and celebrates how fundamental to our existence grass is, converting sunlight into energy for cows to eat that then feed us and pass on all that rich diversity in their milk and butter.
