SCULPTURES

I HAVE NOT CREATED MANY SCULPTURES AND SOME OF THOSE I HAVE WERE MADE IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS, SO ARE NO LONGER EXTANT.  

HERE ARE A COUPLE WHICH ARE AVAILABLE, AND THREE PHOTOS OF ONES MADE IN NATURE WITH ON SITE MATERIALS.

 

THE CYCLE HAS ENDED.

 

Bicycle chain and log. 

80 x 26 x 13cm.

2007.

 

I found this chain fused solid with rust while out walking one day. As a cyclist I felt an empathy with this knackered old bit of ironmongery which had once been so important. I felt quite sorry for it and wanted to commemorate it, so I set it into this piece of natural wood and gave it a title.

 

Though it is strong enough to stand on a shelf and provoke comment, I don't fancy it's chances in the post, so a buyer will most likely have to collect it in person. Get in touch at linda.ezlxq141@gmail.com if you are interested, and we can sort something out.

 

£195.

 

 

 

 

SOLD

KNITTED VASE.

 

Chunky wool, thinner brown yarn, bubble wrap and stuffing.

21 x 21 x 13cm.

 

During an idle moment, and having nothing better to do I knitted this 3D sculpture. A common or garden household object wrought in a material not suited to it's function.

The bubble wrap on top of the stuffing is to give the impression of the vase being full of water.

 

£35, which includes UK shipping.

 

Please contact me at the usual email address if a non-UK purchaser.

Thank you.

 

SCULPTURES AT LARGE.

Snow, such a rarity in Cornwall.

 

When, in 2004 we had some of this precious stuff I quickly rolled some snowballs as I knew it wouldn't be here long. This gave me working material from which I made the above.

On the left is a hollow ball about 50cm high. I managed to cut out a hand silhouette which gave interesting shadows and shapes as the sun shone through. 

On the right are 6 hollow snowballs of varying sizes, the largest being about 25cm in diameter. They lasted a few hours then were gone. 

 

I very nearly had no record of these. I'd run out of film (film!) for my camera and had no money for more, BUT.. I had a video (video!) camera. Years later, when all my vids had been put on disc, I paused the disc and photographed the TV screen. A method I've used to good effect many times. (See BREAK IN on the Paintings page.)

 

A beach sculpture near the Red River, Gwithian Beach, Hayle, Cornwall.

2013.

 

Grey beach pebbles and quartz pebbles arranged into a cone. 

The cliffs here sometimes yield a soft yellow stone - ochre? - which can be used as a crayon. Here, I coloured some of the dull grey stones bright yellow.

I revisited the sculpture after a week and it was reasonably intact, but covered in blown sand.
