About "Whale Tail"
Tambotie wood is very special to me as it has strong scents of sandalwood and is a protected tree. This piece was picked up from the firewood pile on a Wilderness Trail in the African Bush. Tambotie wood needs no finishing oils or laquer as it contains its own wood oils. Beautiful odour which acts as insect repellant for insects which destroy books. The agate base is reminiscent of the ocean with spray.
Nature and natural processes collaborate in the creation of my sculptures; wind, water,insects,and natural weathering all contribute to determining the subject. Stored sunlight in the form of the lignin in wood which is my favourite medium allows the energy of long gone sunrises and sunsets to shine through in the grain of the wood and the latent energy of this stored sunlight imbues creation with beauty.
A percentage of profits will be donated to The Wilderness Leadership School. The selected pieces of wood that become sculptures have been exhibited in natures gallery in some cases for decades, on windswept shores, the hot baking savannahs of Africa and flooding rivermouths where they disgorge into the southern oceans. I happen upon them and recognise the hidden and sometimes not so hidden forms within them. Each piece also contains a story of hidden journeys.
