It is smaller compared to my usual work as it measures 48 cm tall.
It is constructed from shards of slate that flow out in concentric circles contained within an aluminium hoop supported by a stainless steel bar on a limestone base.
This piece was on my coffee table briefly and I found it hypnotic and was reluctant to take it to the gallery as it looked so at home.
The choice of materials that I work in are varied but I find myself always drawn back to slate that I have worked with for many years. I enjoy pulling together stone ,slate ,aluminium and steel ,all hard and strong to create a unique artwork .
