Arctic Circle

After visiting the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve in Alaska I was inspired to look at nature slightly differently. The aufice that is everywhere in the summer has an endless palette of its own. Shadows, reflections and abstract forms created by partially melted ice prompted me to look at this experience in bas relief. Here two birds form a circle which becomes the nest of eggs they are protecting.

In the gardens of Glenstone, I imagined placing it in the Tea House within the circle in the lattice work already designed to fit into this Japanese structure at the end of an allée, which you see in the slide show.

This sculpture is available in two sizes: display and monumental.
