Terroir is a french term that

typically is used to describe wine, literally translated means: earth, or soil. But it also encompasses the mineralogy, climate, region, weather, altitude, that defines place. It can also be used to describe food, and in my case, a new body of work. I think of my work as reflective of the specificity of place. With this in mind, here is the development and research of Terroir, in sculpture, paintings and video.
