An extension and exploration of Andy Goldsworthy's work with stone. As
well as enjoying the challenge of balancing stones improbably on top of
each other in apparent defiance of the laws of gravity, I also took
inspiration from the totem, using shadow and light to reveal sometimes
surprising anthropomorphisms in the shapes of the rocks. The Tors on
Bodmin Moor often have their own naturally improbable stone
formations at the summits. The differing shapes and textures of the
rocks at different locations result in very different temporary
sculptures, reflecting their surroundings.
These examples were created at The Cheesewring on Bodmin Moor, Gwynver
beach near Lands End, and in the Brecon Beacons.
