A set of three large sculptures (205cm, 195cm, 165cm) made from stainless steel, corten steel and copper, these pieces act as sentinels along the driveway to a private house in much the same way as griffins were placed atop gateposts in the past. The site faces out over a steep-sided valley and the stainless steel always reflects the big skies opposite. This also has the effect of reducing the 'loomingness' of the hill behind the site by creating three patches of sky to light up the dark slopes and bushes. The forms show a gradual recession from completeness towards disintegration to reflect the natural surroundings and its seasonal changes. (2007)
