The modules of peat cut with the tairsgeir/peat iron (see video below) look to be about a bag of clay, if not half a bag of clay which is too large to work with. I will think about the modules again when I am clearer about how to construct the stack.
- cut modules raw or fired
- fired modules could have words from the peat glossary imprinted/ textures screen printed
- raw modules could contain materials from the peat bog
- or the modules are constructed like bricks either press moulded or slip cast if they need to be stronger
This is a video showing peat cutting in Uist, which inspired me to take the clay on site and lay and stack them.
