In 2017, I began a new work project, using French Oak to create a series of 30 cube sculptures. The aim of the work was to re-evaluate my path as an artist; to dig a little deeper into what drives my work. After early discussions with land artist Richard Shilling – and possible collaboration on a piece of land art and wood sculpture – the path for the my personal work became clearer. And the journey for the project began to take shape.
Each oak cube weighed 25 kilos and measured 30-30-30 cm the number Three and the shape of a cube plays a continuous role in my work. As a Buddhist they are certain parts of my daily practice that I continuously process. This is mostly done in natural surroundings for me and in 2017 the location was Skipton moors, and beyond. Never has the environment affected my work so dramatically than whilst living here.

“The Oak cubes were designed to be functional seats, side tables for various rooms in a home or office. They are practical to move around being based on small castor wheels. Just imagine. Mobile art in your home that brings a set of tables together to make a larger table or seating area.
The experience of crafting the oak, and finding the materials to use in the castings, was a journey in itself. But working with one of Yorkshire’s best wood suppliers – British Hardwoods – made the whole experience manageable. ”
