Goddess in bronze

Fine Art 15 May 2017

My second monumental-size sculpture cast in bronze.

 Dedicated to the North Westerly winds, she brings rain to our thirsty Western Cape earth, a blowing, billowing, blustery storm wind.


She is a mythological piece following a similar thread of content as my ‘Cape Doctor’ a bronze sculpture of the South Easterly wind that I made some years ago.

The Cape Doctor, the beastly South Easterly that cleanses, here is my article link:

He is The South Easter and Bacchus and stands in a private garden in Stellenbosch South Africa.

Big Octopus sculpture in Copper Nickel

The copper nickel cast Octopus sculpture is a very unusual piece. The underlying theme is the spiral and the Octopus works incredibly well in the round.
The copper nickel has a subtle cold green patina applied and is mounted on a stainless steel base plate.
