The making of a memorial

FAREWELL YOUNG MAN

Here you can view the process of making this beautiful memorial and read the story and inspiration behind the design.

This memorial request was for a fine young man much loved by his friends and family. This was their design based on a combination of koru and manu. My version differed slightly from the original but we discussed and agreed each change as they occurred. In my mind the end result flowed beautifully - uncomplicated, stylish, strong and meaningful, much like the young man it represents.
