I wanted to create a piece of art that would subtly engage the local community with the natural woodland environment.


The piece was positioned off the beaten path, in a clearing and surface finished to blend with the landscape. I wanted the piece to be discovered, creating a magical finding. 'Awakening' is essentially the about the interdependent relationship between mankind and nature. It explores the bond between the two and our transcendence into, and beyond them.


I produced this piece and then found a suitable location, approached the council, and we worked together from there.
