Spira and Ford , being two artists from different countries yet sharing an incredible multi faceted connection, decided during the pandemic years to embark together on an adventure.
Here you will find the milestones of our journey…
I Our first project in September 2020 was a marriage between a sculpture and an epic poem to mark the 2500th anniversary of the battles of Thermopylae and Salamis which took place in 480 BC during the Hellenic-Persian Wars:
II Our second project in June 2021 is entitled The Remains of She – “which takes place in a dystopian future England and Wales, and concerns the 10th century historical characters Æthelflæd Lady of the Mercians, her husband Lord Æthelred, and their daughter Ælfwynn – the hero of our tale. The Remains of She is a love story which has travelled the centuries to bring about a renewal of nature and humankind.”
