Belinda Ormond - "Aloe"
W: 70mm x H: 820mm
Approx. Weight: 1.4kg
This work is unframed
I often draw inspiration from nature. Aloes are particularly sculptural and lend well to clay forms. I love the way the thorns are deep red and complement the leaf green. I have created this with the clay as the red and have painted green layered colour for the leaves. The aloe grows naturally tall with shallow root and the very form is amazingly strong; I have used this same aspect with a single leaf in a vessel.
I am largely inspired by the natural world we live in, and the colour and content of my work reflects this. The constant play of light and shadow around us is visible in my work. I sculpt with light as a tool; reading the shadows that arise from the fall of light on a sculpted line. Life and its sights are a constant marvel to me. I like to find beauty and if I don't see it in something to recreate it with beauty.
