copper Organic Forms are comprised of intricate, futuristic heads
on spiralling copper stems. The heads are mostly inspired by shapes
in nature, and the stems are specially textured and balanced to a
degree where they will sway gently with the breeze.
work is ideal for siting in soil, or even in water, where the illusion
of height is created by the reflection of the stems. A group of 5 Organic
Forms was voted 'Best Sculpture' by the public at the Mount Ephraim
Sculpture Trail in Hernhill, Kent, in 1996.

2.5 metres in height, and are finished in their natural copper state,
allowing for change in colour over time, or with a verdigris patina
that will develop further in contact with the elements.
