This vase is inspired by a photograph I found of myself as a child, dressed as a cowboy. As children in the 1980s we played a game called cowboys and Indians in which the cowboys were considered the ‘goodies’ and the Indians the ‘badies’. I desperately wanted to be a cowboy, though at the time didn’t fully understand the irony in this desire. I was continuously told by my peers, that I should be an Indian. The idea of ‘Nowhere County’ is a symbol of the sense I had of not fitting in anywhere, growing up in rural West Sussex as a mixed race person.
