Every work is a unique cast, a direct translation of the organic specimen into bronze by means of a ‘direct burn out’. The Organics series began as a celebration of these natural pieces and are taken from the walled garden at Great Glemham House, Suffolk. The transformation to bronze exposes the value these objects already held - a value recognised by the generations of keepers of the garden and exercised in the centuries of care that have taken place there.
