Steel & Stainless Steel
‘I have been mesmerised by starlings as they collect together in the evenings just at dusk creating their beautiful shapes in the sky. They try to stay together for safety as a predator finds it much more difficult to attack a murmuration than a single bird. At the slightest breeze my 'murms' wander around following tiny air currents, then as the winds increase become more regimented all changing direction in unison like a flock of starlings. The tree form was the obvious shape for my mumuration and each new piece has its own style and character. I always make a few 'murms' touch so that they 'talk' to each other as the wind moves them adding a further element to the piece.'
