  • Nameless sculpture

    This piece has been hanging around for a while waiting a base as it is big and heavy. The main, turned piece is macrocarpa (Monterrey Pine) and is 22" dia. and the plinth is 15" tall and is a polished piece of very old oak from a beam complete with oxidised bolt holes and very heavy so capable of supporting the main piece. The top swivels on the stainless steel rod that it sits on so that either face can be used as the front. Any ideas for a name for it?

            I know its just two pieces of wood and a metal rod but there is something sooo touching about it. It has the look of one of those cutie dolls with the big heads and little bodies - I can't remember what they were called but they had such sweet faces.
            I think you should call it "Dreaming" as it appears to have a finger pointing towards the chin.
            I know, I'm nuts but I don't care.

                Well carry on loving it. It is so appealing and that is the only way I could describe what I could see.

                  " EARTH "

                  If you took a slice through the centre of the planet the outer edges of the sculpture are the mountains and valleys, the rings are the strata of the earth with fissures through them going right down to the core of the planet.

                    It reminds me of the sun, if that is any help in naming it!

                      Sorry, been sat here scratching my head for a while and I can't think of a name, but to me it looks like a pebble thrown in water with the concentric rings waving outwards.
                      I like it.

                        It looks like a flower, it's lovely. I have a bvig wooden rose infront of my fire, it's shabby now but could never part with it.

                            A 'Twobit' sculpture somehow makes it sound a bit cheap LOL which I'm sure it's not !!!

                              I am so sorry. I really didn't mean to offend. I was trying to point out how beauty can arise from such simple ideas, and don't take offence at the word 'simple' either as I am using it in its broadest way.
