Cally Thistle

Cally House, near Blairgowrie, Scotland.

My clients, Mr and Mrs Buchan like all things Scottish and after meeting me at the Royal Highland Show they commissioned me to build a thistle in their woodland garden.

The thistle is constructed in Westmorland Green and Burlington Blue Slate.  I used fairly large pieces of slate for this sculpture.  As the sculpture is in a woodland garden I think that it was important to be relatively unfussy, leaving the slate as unrefined as possible adding to the natural, informal look. I finished the base of with reclaimed railway sleepers. They help to frame the sculpture and give it some width.

Slate Sculpture of a helix. One of my favourite sculptures. I created this sculpture in 2010. I wanted to capture as much movement in the slate sculpture as possible. I think there is a fluid quality to this piece which immediately makes me think of a ballerina.
