Finding that making moulds to create animals, even slices of animals in ice was unworkable I trapped them in ice instead as Ice Core Cocktails. I normally use just natural materials but here make a comment on the overuse of plastic and its ongoing damage to the environment. The bright colours of the petroleum based material clash dramatically with the more muted colours of water and earth. I comment on the shocking things that are happening to animals and to their environment. The animals are trapped, heading fro extinction and the climate is acting in unexpected and frightening ways. In addition these plastic animals are toys. Humanity plays with the Earth without considering the consequences.
