This work is a twofold homage to nature; the seed form and the wind. In the natural world, the two work in perfect harmony, the seed having evolved over millions of years into a finely tuned wing.
This harmony is present throughout nature, it is harmony that we humans strive for, and sometimes struggle to find. I hope that my sculpture is a fascinating and peaceful work that points towards a simpler relationship with the world.
There are various possibilities concerning shape, height and finish when designing the Sculpture plinths. The two materials I usually work with to create the plinths are Weathering Steel and Galvanised/Mordent finished Steel, both incredibly durable.
Weathering Steel (cor-ten) is a steel alloy which does not require painting and acquires a stable, rust-like appearance over time. It’s surface has a matt textured finish with a wonderful depth of colour which changes from a light orange to a deep purple over the decades.
Galvanised Steel with a mordent finish leaves a soft textured matt surface with a wonderfully interesting pewter/lead colouring that will darken when wet.
