Jasmine's Ent

Just a little branch off the Manchurian pear tree - but the Ent spirit wanted to stand there.

and is he happier now?

What Happened to those Horsemen?

Well they never got made in glass. And just as well too - the balancing of my first kinetic sculpture was a tricky business involving fishing weights and dome nuts - best hidden behind the cold cast aluminium. So it was shown at Herring Island - and whilst it didn't find a good home it had a few admirers. And such is life! The clip below may not read in your browser but you can see it on YouTube here

Thinking about the theme further - and reading Jenny Donovan's "Designing to Heal" the revelation for me is that acts of theft, violence and injustice break the network of community and the social contract upon which we all depend.

Life and Love that happen in between sculptures...

Rohan and Jennifer are married - it was very beautiful by the river. The cake was the ephemeral sculpture - that was the last of the warm days - just a prefect fairwell to autumn mildness.

It was just the way to celebrate love and life - with music and friends and the river.
