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.
Slate sculpture commissioned by the Dowager Countess of Cawdor and installed in Auchindoune Gardens in the Scottish Highlands.
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.
I created my first slate sculpture in 2007 and by 2008 had held my first exhibition. I have since exhibited many times and moved into other mediums including bronze, glass and steel.Read more >
I receive commissions from both the public and the corporate world. In 2010 my sculpture, commissioned by The Glenlivet Distillery, was unveiled by The Prince of Wales.Read more >
I am delighted that my work is being enjoyed by many customers throughout the UK and overseas.
Within the last year I have increasingly been able to demonstrate my ability to work to a large scale, including the installation of a 2.5 tonne slate apple in Cambridge and this 15 tonne slate sphere, taking pride of place at the front of this stunning property near Harrogate.
