My sculpture is a barque balanced on an ornate tripod. The ship is sailing upon a turquoise ocean wave which weaves between the sticks. The base is covered by overgrown leaves. The precarious balance and organic curve of the wave creates a strong sense of movement. My work has an intriguing mood due to its unusual structure.
