In the Beginning (2002)

Diameter 140cm.

Stainless-steel rods, silver-soldered

Dandelions, alliums – I love these explosive flowers and seed-heads. I spent months and months making over a hundred individual stalks for just one sculpture, each with 6 or 7 shorter stalks, each of which carried 10 or 11 even shorter stems, so that I ended up cutting, grinding and assembling around 10,000 little steel stalks of the smallest size. When it was done it shimmered! It stayed in Goodwood (Cass Sculpture Foundatiion) until it was sold.
