latest from the foundry

These two works are part of the overall artwork for the remote village of New Luce - the castings are two halves of 'seed'. They are designed to lock together should they ever meet. Each will be installed over one of the two rivers that meet in the village. The place where the rivers meet is called the Turn Wiel (pronounced 'wheel') - this is a swirling pool.

The next stage at the foundry is a patination process on the surface of the metal and then I will work on the sculptures in the studio to incorporate them into the green oak structures that will hold them in position in their locations in the the village
