Whereas the original version was fabricated in bronze, this one has been painstakingly constructed by Little Halstock using hand-selected flitches of European burr walnut applied to thirty-three pieces of solid brass that pivot from a central point. Every other leaf is book-matched, giving the appearance of movement as the piece spirals through the laminations. Masur birch has been applied to the back of each leaf, contrasting with burr walnut to dynamic effect. Each piece in the series is hand-constructed and therefore unique. Presented on a black Nero Marquina marble plinth signed by the artist.
This project was a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with Little Halstock, boasting some of the finest and skilled craftsmen around. London Connoisseur arranged for the collaboration, whereby I presented a selection of designs that underwent a period of development over around a year. The resulting sculpture is offered for sale through commission by London Connoisseur, with the Halstock team crafting each exclusive piece to order. Please contact Thomas with any inquiries about this design and he will happily pass your details on to Helen Chislett at London Connoisseur who will be happy to discuss your requirements.
