Thanks sno, I like that response! If not quite sculpture, I guess it is sculptural/tactile. I can imagine an art that was purely for the fingers. I am not sure I would trust to reach my hand blindly into an unknown space created by a contemporary artist. Shock would undoubtedly be involved

Thanks for the comment ntl. The connection to the Japanese tradition is particularly appealing, likewise to the Korean, Chinese one of objectifying natural rock.
Speaking of ancient rock. I've just heard that the Rolling Stones are set to tour again. Honestly. That is what I heard.
And you have cheered me, too, with that, and, honestly, virtually all of your comments, and not those solely about my work. It took me ages to come back to work on this. I had to remove it from a support before I could work on it again. It sat atop the radiator by the cooker for ages. I was surprised nobody said anything.
Isn't that a dangerous place to put it? On the radiator? Or is it currently out of commission? I don't know how flammable your art is, but mine kind of is. You are secretive about your media, so I have no idea. I swear, I'm not trying to fish for your secrets.
I used to do a lot more 3D type stuff like this, or in this vein, but they have been hard to store. Hannah has always given me flack for it, as some of the work have pins that go through to the other side and often poke people unless I add reinforcements so that doesn't happen. Maybe that's my sinister side.
The rad is currently out of commission, similarly the Living room/lounge with the above work stacked along one wall! I should remove them to a less public part of the house. People just do not understand things like these. Me neither.
I cannot imagine a sinister side, not for a minute.
