The overall shape of this sculpture is based on one of the five
Platonic solids, the hexahedron (cube).
To rethink the geometric possibilities
and to introduce a variation on a cube theme,
two corners of the cube have been
truncated, and the cube rotated in space,
stood on its end and finished off with
a pyramid shaped spire on top.
Based on the character of these
materials, a geometric arrangement was a natural choice - easy,
allowing all elements to fit together like a handmade three dimensional jigsaw
The different wood grains and original textures have been preserved and
further enhanced by the
application of different coloured acrylic paint stains.
The colours are earthy and
in keeping with a naturalistic look, nothing
artificial or pretentious, just playful and uplifting.
