The making of a sculpture

FOR STACY

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

I was asked to create a sculpture that a family could look upon at home and think about their recently departed wife and mother - Stacy.

The 3 koru represent her children and the twist represents the bond of love shared between husband, wife and family.

The single twist is a lovely shape, and can display movement and life in an otherwise solid material.

I needed to ensure that I allowed enough material for an overlapping twist. If I started too thin, it may end up too delicate.

Keeping the 3 koru reducing in size yet proportional to each other got a little fiddly.

I delivered it to Murray and one of his sons. I think I achieved what they were after.
