What inspired this sculpture: Shona from Sydney commissioned me to create a sculpture, inspired by the Geelong Bollards, originally created by artist Jan Mitchell.
Her design brief was to carve a fully clothed Lifesaver in stone without the use of colour, to be installed beside their pool in time for her husband's 40th birthday.
Details which would normally be easily painted in colours had to be reinvented three-dimensionally to create shadows, and textures also replaced vibrant colours. I developed the concept where the sculpture comes in 2 pieces to enable easy transportation and installation, which reduces cost considerably.
Mount Gambier Limestone was a perfect choice for her Lifesaver, since limestone was originally from the ocean floor with many small fossils of coral and shells which are revealed once sanded back.
