This work started like so many others as an observation while making something else, I was cutting a pear shape from a piece of pear wood from a fallen tree which a friend had given me, after cutting the rough shape on the bandsaw to start carving a small memento I stopped and considered this shape in front of me. It took a lot of work to perfect it then transpose it to metal but I am always pleased when I make one now and then. As I walk around the piece it always amazes me how many shapes I find in its curves. the piece is 2.1 metres tall but I did create a 2.5 metre version for an exhibition where it won the public vote.
