SECOND NATURE

SECOND NATURE

2008

This piece is available for purchase.

A split second caught in bronze, first inspired by swirls of leaves dancing outside the studio. A moment which lifts us and connects us with the possibility that nature is just as playful as our own second nature.

SECOND NATURE represents a further development in the leaf sculpture techniques. Only the largest leaves from the hedgerow were cast into wax and then cast individually into bronze. They were laid out and assembled, with structure and aesthetics vying for superiority. When the balance was achieved, the piece was welded together and tested out by the Elf and Safety team at Chichester Cathedral before the sculpture made its debut in an exhibition in the cloisters there, known as 'Paradise.'
