Sculpture: Wood, Veneer, Burr oak, Weathered wood, Textured wood on Wood.
Stone Road was inspired by a walk in the Lake District in the UK, climbing up 'Catbells' hill above the town of Keswick on a showery day in May. As the rain came and went the stone paths glistened in the sun, slowly drying from dark, reflective grey to a lighter cream colour. The green of the moss and grass growing in the cracks became vivid and bright in the rain, slowly drying to light green and straw.
The picture is made up of layers of wood veneer that have been hand-dyed to create an impression of the path. The surrounding moorland is represented by bleached and weathered burr oak veneer which has a very open texture including splits and cracks to contrast with the smooth sycamore veneer used for the stone.
