Stories of the Sea

Every stone tells a story.

One of the joys of unhurried, contemplative visits to a beach is the opportunity to explore the many shapes and stories of the stones.

It has taken me years and many pleasurable hours on Cornish beaches to create a collection of stones for my latest works.

Arranging multiple forms together in one piece is not new but typically they have all used the same materials.

Trio is a collection of sculptures using different materials.

Trio IITrio II (left) includes two scorched burr oak elements in stunning contrast to the reflective polished bronze pebble. The texture of the oak is fantastic and tactile.

Achieving exactly the right combination of stones in the right arrangement takes considerable patience and experimentation. Sometimes the process sparks a quest for the perfect stone to complete the story (and the need for another beach excursion).

Trio IIITrio III (right) is the only sculpture in the collection that does not incorporate polished bronze. Reclaimed bronze dust bound by resin is used to fill the fissures in the fumed oak base.

If you would like to see more photos of the Trio collection, please contact me.
