” Sail V “
This sculpture is a variation on a series I, ‘ve been working on recently. Inspired by the dynamic and sculptural forms of sails. I find the fragility of the Portland Stone carved to its structural limit and the tension of the wind-blown sail work really well together. Also, the fact that Portland stone was formed in a marine environment makes a very relevant connection.
” Tale “
Here I, ‘ve been playing with circular shapes, bisecting them to see the forms they create. Its been the first time I, ve carved Carrara Marble and what a beautiful stone it is. Many years ago I visited the quarries while travelling around Italy and they are stunning.
I m very happy to make commissioned work, working with the client to arrive at a suitable design, and price.
