The Aurora design series started with a fantastic opportunity to make a sculpture for the Crown Estate at Kingsbury House in Knightsbridge, working with London’s award winning Architects, Barr Gazetas.
I was commissioned to make a feature sculpture for the foyer of the building being redeveloped. The sculpture needed to fit inside the bay window facing out onto the street, which was quite tall and narrow. Aurora’s design progressed from others which were based on the Fibonacci sequence, though to fit within this window space, the form had to be elongated.
This version of the Aurora design is scaled down version of the original, made to commission for a new Saga cruise ship ‘The Spirit Of Adventure’. The sculpture was one of two that was installed on the ship’s deck, making up part of an art trail that passengers could explore.
