These sketches are for small sculptural window decorations in silver. This year I would like to talk about designs that haven't been realised as yet and show what happens with their development, as the project progresses.
With this design I'd originally intended to do a 'sketch' that was semi-realistic. As I started drawing it transpired that actually the emotion and meaning behind the piece were dictating the style. The resulting design is spindly and ghost-like with the form dissapearing into the air at the extremities. A fire bird, with vitality in the centre, that has been lost to the wind.
