Hope springs eternal...410 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

Hidden secrets454 viewsMy inspiration for this piece was a piece of broken shell off the beach where the smooth flowing form of the structure of the shell is only exposed after it is broke and worn by the sea... thus exposing the hidden secrets.
Stands about 65cm tall (plus base for stability)

Escape (back view)660 viewsThis piece of stone I've had around for a few years so is fairly aged looking, but just right for this sculpture. You see a grey block of stone from this angle, and if you walk around it, the lady will be revealed.
About 1.2m tall

Escape (side view)415 viewsMy daughter actually suggested a lady escaping from a piece of stone... so here she is...
My lady is pushing her way out of the stone and into the light, and evolving as she does.
Her body is ultra-smooth and lovely to touch, her hair which is being torn free from the stone is rough, and the rest of the stone from is unsealed so it is grey and aged.

In the Groove396 viewsA neighbour of mine saw one of my other wacky pieces and said 'I bet you can't carve balls suspended within the stone.' I took that as a challenge and here it is! - balls caught in the groove... A really fun, funky piece which always makes me smile.
Stands 1400mm tall

Wavy fern leaf420 viewsAs a teenager I used to be taken on bush walks by my parents – both of whom were very knowledgeable about plants and trees. They used to argue amongst themselves about specific botanic names and tell me the most amazing things about the plants we passed by. “Wavy fern” (not its biological name – sorry Mum and Dad) is not a small fern but a large glossy one – which I love the undulating shapes.00000

Don't Know379 viewsI was doodling when I made this. I began thinking about fish hooks, then dolphins and whales swimming in the ocean, and then vertibrae??? So I came up with something very unusual but soft and flowing with deep contrasting shadows.
1200mm tall on a 200mm tall base

Through the looking glass (Complete)398 viewsFinally after many months this statue is finally together. Murray thinks its the beginning of my 'crazy' stage. But I like it. It's fun and it makes me smile.
I've decided I want to keep this one so sorry its not for sale.
