Step Lightly June 2010 001.jpg


Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, Matakana.

Three filigreed plant-form arches step lightly across the lake.

Each arch reflected creates a circular work, half real, half illusion. Positioned with equidistant spaces, the arches imply a continuous undulating sinuous form above and below the surface of the water. Historically, the arch was used in the creation of aqueducts, bridges and viaducts. In the Minoan era, a series of arcs carved in stone, surrounded by water represented regenerating life. 
An edition of two.

Dimensions: Width 1800mm x Height 1500mm x Depth 280mm (each arch) 9000mm overall.

Materials: Marine grade 316 Stainless Steel, hand finished and electropolished.
