2013 – ongoing
These sculptures, designed around the form of a water drop, are inspired by water baptism and Christianity, with a focus on contrasting forms and textures – smooth rounded water drop forms and rougher textured principal forms. This water drop form is the foundation of each piece which intends to portray aspects of the Christian faith through an emphasis on water and light, fundamental to the initiating and sustaining of life. Testimony and Blessing, as the only ones in the series to have been cast so far, illustrate how the others will look when complete in the bronze. Each original sculpture is made in plaster with a view to casting in bronze when a range of patinas is applied in order to enhance the impression of water and light on the surface; symbols of refreshment and hope.
