The Eternal Flame

Material: Lime

60cm x 30cm

Made from the same fallen tree as "At the Centre", the inspiration here comes from a simple candle flame.

This sculpture is designed to be viewed both in normal daylight, or in a darkened room lit from within by a single candle flame. With the latter method, any slight draught causes the candle flame to flicker, making eerie shadows dance on the surrounding walls and ceiling.

Ideal as a room centrepiece, this sculpture has an ecclesiastical feel to it. A long time in the making, but worth it!

This piece is privately owned.
