Flock is a sculpture which has been a long time in the making.
It was conceived as an idea while I was working at Stormy Castle in Gower and is intended as a sculpture which can be adapted to its environment; taking a regimented form, flowing against existing structures or placed as a sinuous streak in the landscape. Using ‘end-ties’ which hold the shuttering while pouring large quantities of concrete the flock mimics in metal the wading birds seen all around the site as building work was taking place.
The wood is now silvering nicely and there are 102 birds in this flock.
The shadows are wonderful.
