More about Bowls of Paradise: Adam & Eve, 2015
'I worked with petrified wood to represent wooden elements in a coat of arm as a part of a funerary monument for a church in Lincolnshire.
In my investigations in sculpture dealing with religious relics I became preoccupied with how relics often discredited with dating, were still revered. This was an issue of faith and belief and a rich area of interest in a number of sculptures executed through the years in particular ‘The Holy Grail’ in petrified wood whose age could not be discredited.'
