Timelapse video of “Fields of Mud seeds of Hope” at Ripon Cathedral


Ripon Cathedral has “Fields of Mud” an art installation by Dan Metcalfe.

It is made battlefield mud from Passchendaele and earth taken from a Great War military camp in the UK.

The work starts thoroughly soaked and, as it dries, five battle weary silhouettes gradually appear.

There are also poppy seeds within the mud and people can buy segments of the installation and grow the poppies – seeds of hope.
