Nautilus

The chambered nautilus is nature in such a rich abstract form. I was commissioned to do this sculpture for the Grey-Green Garden at Glenstone. The base became integral to the sculpture as it elevated the form to eye level and allowed the energy of the piece to unwind into the entire garden. Putting the verdigris patina on the base and the stone-like patina on the nautilus helps even more to thrust the form up into a higher level of site.
