A few people have shown interest in some of the things I make, so I decided to put photos and sometimes descriptions up here. This is the first, it’s a sculpture I finished in March this year, which I gave to my father as a birthday present. I started it in early 2013 (yep) after seeing a piece called Two Forms with White, by Barbara Hepworth, at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield in late 2012. My piece was broadly influenced by that work, although I didn’t use a single block of wood, instead laminating around 20 pieces of different thickness and type. The wood used included pine, kauri, mahogany and oak. The shape was then coated in several layers of Danish oil. There’s also a small piece of aluminium in there, which I cast and then shaped to fit.
