"For me, the shapes conjure a sense of freshness and fragility. At the same time the textures represent a metaphor for life itself...growth, vitality, pulsation. I love the spontaneity of the twists and turns of the vines. Because each piece in individually hand sculpted and assembled, the organic nature of the design is enhanced further. It was challenging to achieve an overall order and balance in the composition of these pieces with shapes which are inherently asymmetrical and random."
