Personal Brief: To create a free standing interior/exterior piece, which could be placed on any ground surface safely and without damage. This maquette large enough to stand alone and create a powerful sculpture in its own right and give an impression of what the much larger 1.5 life size work would look like.
To create a piece of sculpture to inspire hope and 'Faith' in the viewer. Designed with those who are in a transitional point in their lives and are in need of comfort. This piece has already found temporary residence in Winchester Cathedral, Guildford Cathedral, local churches, libraries, community centres, sculpture gardens and galleries. I would like to place the sculpture in a Hospice setting.
This was a self funded, self driven project, which I made because I felt the message offered was needed. It is non-denominational and doesn't affiliate with any particular religion, however the piece borrows symbolic meaning from several spiritual arenas. The piece is available for hire at no cost other than expenses. A cast of the maquette is available as an edition of 7 in bronze with a white finish. Please contact me if you would like further information.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
