Hand-carved garden sculpture

Description

Carved from a single piece of local stone with a blue-grey hue, which was quarried at Glossop in Derbyshire. This stone, from the deepest part of the quarry, is the hardest, finest and most dense of Yorkshire sandstones - so dense that it absorbs almost no water and when wet looks and feels almost like glass.

If you run your hand along the surface you will be intrigued to find that after three revolutions you will return to your starting point.

The sculpture is mounted on a 25 x 900mm stainless steel rod. Please ask if you would like advice on mounting.

Although compact, this piece is very impressive.

I like to explore geometric concepts with my sculpture. This twisted torus has an equilateral triangular cross-section throughout. The warping results in an object which has only one surface and one edge.
