Using an endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, flowers, leaves, icicles, mud, pine-cones, stones, twigs, thorns, bark, rock, clay, feathers,

petals, twigs—Andy Goldsworthy creates outdoor sculptures that are usually transient that disappear shortly after creation.

Page 3: Andy Goldsworthy: Sculptor, Photographer, Environmentalist

Goldsworthy works almost exclusively with his hands even sometimes his teeth or “found tools in nature” to build his sculptures.

Page 4: Andy Goldsworthy: Sculptor, Photographer, Environmentalist

His work is almost always temporary and almost always done outdoors lasting minutes, a few days, or weeks decaying or changing in the environment.

Page 5: Andy Goldsworthy: Sculptor, Photographer, Environmentalist

His documents all his work through his photographs which record how his sculptures change and and the effects of time in nature.

Giant Snowballs in London: In June of 2000, Goldsworthy transplanted 13 snowballs each weighing a ton which had been kept in freezers throughout the streets of London. As they melted, pebbles, pine combs, and chalk and other materials from the Scottish countryside

were revealed within!
