Almost a year after the residency, I assembled my ideas into an installation at the Royal British Society of Sculptors

In designing the show, I conveyed something of the excitement and energy I felt while working in Pietrasanta.  The starting-points of the pieces can be found in various posts in the blog.

These photographs, taken by Sim Canetty-Clarke, capture the essence of the show.

Some kind words
