David was approached by clients Bill and Helen after meeting at The Hampton Court Flower Show a number of years ago. Both Bill and Helen were very keen on commissioning a piece of David’s Kinetic work but wanted something a little different. This is when the Magnolia Leaf idea was born. Helen is a very keen gardener and the Magnolia Leaf with its unsymmetrical shaped leaves were of great interest. David began working on a prototype to see if the shape was something that might work well both practically and visually. The next stage for the clients was choosing colour. David helped this process along by adding the potential colours to the prototype for Bill and Helen which helped the decision making process. The end result was a triumph! David is very keen on experimenting with the use of colour in his work so watch this space.
