Sand Circles

Today I learnt a friend and unique artist has died.

I am sad beyond words. I need no sympathy because that belongs to his family and closer friends. I just want to celebrate his talent and his art.

Marc created this wonderful ceremonial expression of connection – a magical time on Mwnt beach. One of those people casting moving shadows is me.

Here is the post I wrote about it.

And another when I went with my cousin to Mwnt beach for a New Year’s Sand Circle.

  2. I live quite near Mwnt and know several people who have joined in the sand circles but never been myself. He made amazing art. I am sad there will be no more unless someone else know how to do them and takes over.

  4. Agreeing with Kate – his art lives on as we all are proving as we view it again. Now he’s gone onward, but still creating beauty on another plain, doing so even more gloriously!

  8. Thanks to the magic of drones, his ephemeral art will never die. Obviously a man with a great love of the wonder of the natural world. He has gone home to the Mother.

  10. Sorry to read the news, but he taught you what to do to make circles so his skills live on in you and others.

    • I know how to rake sand, but I have no idea how he translated such beautiful and complicated designs from paper to vastly scaled up sand art. There are others who do similar work, but not at his level of expertise – he was a magician!

  11. I remember his sand art from previous posts – always inspiring… And what you said about needing no sympathy because that belongs to family and close friends is such a sensible response, but not often heard
