My trips to Cornwall are times of great inspiration. Walking along the beaches, I am endlessly inspired by the natural forms of sea eroded pebbles and stones.
Naturally abraded stones form the basis of the Beach Song series already comprising 15 individual pieces.
Balancing stones on top of one another is a preoccupation and a challenge that never tires. Pieces of highly polished bronze are balanced on - or even topping off - these wonderful forms. The contrast between the natural and highly worked is intriguing and shows the simple beauty of both.
Achieving the right relationship between the stone and the bronze is exceptionally difficult but equally rewarding when it is right.
