I was commissioned by the author to make a totem to mark the launch of her second novel this week (reviewed at length in the Financial Times last weekend). She sent me the words above as a brief, and my first response was to put together this collage of images. THEN I came across the Frederic Church painting of the era showing Mount Tambora erupting and it pulled everything together. Voices that remain with the reader and themes for our times. Plus I'm a proud sister-in-law.
