    Everlasting Embrace

    In memory of Marc Sheehan

    The two portions of this slate sculpture represent Marc and his wife Julie. The larger part of the sphere embraces the smaller. The gulf in the centre is filled by their daughter Emily.

    The galaxy we live in, the Milky Way, like many other spiral galaxies, if viewed from afar appears like two arms of a spiral (represented here by the slate). The light at the centre of the galaxy, which is produced by newly formed stars, is represented here by the glass sphere.

    Ever Watchful

    This slate sphere appears to 'keep watch' over an old Peel Tower by Moffat in Southern Scotland.

    Positioned on an angle for dramatic effect, this piece sits atop a boulder and appears to defy gravity.

about image

Installed February 2015

It is particularly apt that this slate sculpture, 'Creation', should be positioned in such a beautiful setting. Flora and fauna abound as a tributary of the River Nairn flows past. Carefully positioning moss covered rocks around the slate egg sculpture gives the piece a sense of belonging and helps it nestle into its environment. 

Auchindoune Gardens, Highlands, Scotland - commissioned by The Dowager Countess of Cawdor (Penrhyn slate)
