LUNDY is a series of unique variations and this sculpture [no 3] has individual features which distinguish it from it's predecessors.

ALWAYS is a bronze sculpture that rotates on a slate composite base. The base is multicoloured and is reminiscent of Cornish stone seen on many beaches.

Always is an edition of 9 variations. This is number 5 and has individual characteristics as each piece varies in colour and mounting

It stands 35 cms high and is ideally suited to a tabletop or shelf.

This sculpture has two lives, one during the day when the simple overall structure is dominant and at night when the interior and slot take centre stage.
The slate composite base of FRAYED LINE contains an upward shining LED light which in low light illuminates the dark blue interior before emerging through the slot in the face of the bronze stele.

The long thin slot has an irregular edge, also dark blue in contrast with the paler turquoise colouration.

The tall thin bronze part is 71.5 cms high and the overall the height is 96 cms

The textured surface of TRANSFORMATION is derived from burr oak and is contained by smooth and highly polished bronze sides.

A small piece 24 cms high it has an extended backward facing base and stands firmly on any surface, particularly shelves.

STILL THE RIVER RUNS rotates on a slate composite base. The textured surfaces each side differ and highlights show the natural bronze peering through the dark blue colouration.
Rivers in this part of Herefordshire at the foot of The Black Mountains are in their infancy and flow fast and shallow over changing terrain.. The Monnow absorbs two other brooks near here [and on it's way many others] before eventually merging with the Wye miles away at Monmouth
The overall height is 67 cms.

Fastnet III can be sited outdoors or in. Cast in bronze and mounted on a circular oxidised brass base there is no definition so can be turned at will to suit any particular preference.

Ancient Bowl has totally random apertures and penetrations given an eroded shape and appearance.
Cast in bronze the interior is patinated blue whilst on the outside the natural bronze is treated with a golden brown finish.

The LED light in the base of Nightfall I illuminates the interior and is clearly visible at all times through the narrow slot in the front.. At night the light also escapes through the vertical gap and casts magical reflections on surrounding walls and ceiling.
As with all four pieces in the Nightfall series the two bronze parts are mounted on an oxidised brass base which nests in a recess in the base and being independent is easily removed.

The base of Nightfall III contains an upward shining LED which illuminates the inside. Even in modest conditions the light is visible escaping through frayed slots reflecting the red interior. At night not only does the light shine through these apertures but also through the vertical gap between the two bronze pieces throwing alluring shafts of light onto the ceiling and surrounding walls.
