Put on one side

The little sculpture is more or less complete. I am not sure what I think of it yet. Perhaps it is best to simply put it aside and to start on the next. There is something very satisfying in making forms that are on one level very simple and yet actually quite complex and fully understood; fully realised. What we have here is more than two slightly bulbous forms on top of one another. There is a twist and some parts are flatter than others. The top form is slightly off balance. The sculpture is figurative, but only just. The forms being almond shape in section have edges on either side which help animate the twist. Tomorrow I have to drive to near Bath to load a sculpture onto a lorry bound for Sweden. I have been invited to send works to this exhibition over there but only have one that is suitable and not promised to other exhibitions already.
