About Field for the British Isles 

Field for the British Isles (1993) is an installation piece comprising around forty thousand individual terracotta figures. Each one is unique and is simply fashioned, with holes for eyes. The figures completely occupy the space in which they are installed, filling the space so the viewer can look at the figures, but cannot enter the space they occupy. It is the largest single artwork in the Arts Council Collection.
