Pillars in Time388 viewsMy work was inspired from a trip to Rome where I saw ancient monuments telling tales of Roman battles and victories.
These two pillars don't speak of such celebrated moments in history, but instead tell some of our own stories. As you walk between them you can travel through the seasons , going to the beach in Summer, playing in leaves in Autumn, having snowball fights in Winter, planting a garden in Spring... etc. They may seem insignificant moments in history , but they make us what we are.

Pillar of Salt 1510 viewsIn the Bible Lot's wife looked back and she was instantly turned into a pillar of salt.
Looking at the world today - at the way we have squandered the world's resources, cutting down forests and polluting rivers and waterways, perhaps it is a good thing to look back and see how the world once was. We need to look back and figure out how to fix it rather than boldly moving on ignoring the signs

The Answer579 viewsI was thinking about grass blowing around in the wind when I was carving this one and then half way through I under went a slight change of mind... deciding that it would be too busy with lots of swaying lines all over it. So I went for a smooth contrast. So this one I feel is very tactile. You can run you fingers along the wavy lines and then enjoy the cool smoothness of the central core.
