A Dragon for Flint…

IMG-20171025-WA0002

‘The Dragon’ is intended to be a monumental steel drawing in space; the symbol of Welsh pride, through which (though not obscured by) the Castle ruins can be seen. A lasting, imposing trace of the weight of history. My desire is that they balance, and acknowledge that this is a nation for all its citizens.

And to give an idea of the possible scale:

After taking these pictures, I sat with Nick in his studio talking about his work, and produced some informal portraits of him.

The shell; the symbol of the Camino de Santiago, is the inspiration for another work – based on the North Wales Pilgrims Way, running from Holywell to Bardsey.

‘Buddies’ – the sculpture for Ysgol-Y-Foel, is ready and waiting in the sculptor’s yard. It will shortly go on display outside Capel Gad, pending the school being ready to move it to its permanent home. A better quality photo to follow shortly!

Jade Jones-

Jade Jones has won Olympic Gold a second time for Taekwondo. Last time, I developed a macquette for a proposed statue, which can be seen here.
