And Everything & Nothing Has Changed

And Everything and Nothing Has Changed is a project contemplating the missing ancient stones of Clay Country. Megaliths, alone and in groups, were lost when the clay pits were created.

Initiated by queer artist and producer Robin Sullivan the project has drawn in archaeologists, artists and local people to recreate these social and spiritual spaces, reinventing them for contemporary times. Currently based at the iconic Carludden Skytip site, Robin is running a series of workshops and field trips to engage the local community with this fascinating story.

The project will culminate in the firing of a standing stone, made from St Austell clay, in an unusual petal kiln later in 2021. The final work will be sited in St Blazey, creating a brand new megalith for the town as a mark of respect to this ancient heritage, remade in the material that made St Blazey what it is today, china clay.

A documentary following the community art project has been produced. You can watch it by clicking here
