About the Piece
"Pattern has always been important in my work; I particularly like the rhythm of repetition but with each element having its own identity as in this piece."

Artist Statement
“I use sycamore (acer pseudoplatanus) because it turns, stains and carves very well and it is a very common timber in the UK. Although a lustrous, beautiful timber it hasn't got a figure which would compete with what I do to its surface. Carving and colouring has been a fundamental part of my work for the past few years.”
