Hope springs eternal...401 viewsSmall statue using flowing theme. When I was carving this the expression ' like getting blood from a stone' kept coming to mind, but I thought that was a bit yucky so I've named it something more hopeful and positive.
Stands 350mm tall

River Song166 viewsI was sitting on the banks of the Waipawa River one day, throwing stones in and watching the ripples made when I found myself transfixed by the movement of water over and around stones. I watched the way the water swirled and flowed making patterns in light and form.
It always intrigues me trying to replicate movement in something really static like stone – it is so rigid and fixed - so I saw it as a challenge.

spikey sea-shell437 viewsI actually dug a spikey shell out of our garden and have no idea how it got here so far from the sea. This is what gave me the idea for this statue which is slightly modified to allow for strength. I really like the contrast between the soft curves and the viscious looking spikes.
750mm tall
