Christine Boshier’s sculpture, ‘High Tide, Low Tide’, was commissioned by Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre, and is featured as part of the Uist Sculpture Trail. The work reflects its intertidal position, situated on the shoreline behind the arts centre. The structure was constructed with a steel frame and concrete and the dome form is covered in particles of glass, which reflect the sunlight and resembles salt crystals. The hollow interior of the sculpture is filled with salt, and at high tides the sea slowly draws the salt from a small opening. Christine Boshier spent a month at Taigh Chearsabhagh constructing the work.
