"When you are still young and you have your first girlfriend/boyfriend, the feeling is very intense and powerful and overwhelming. So this piece shows that intense absorption in each other and the blanket reinforces how wrapped up in each other they are."

This unusual pale green 'fern stone' is a hard variety of serpentine that was a particular favourite of Brighton Sango's.

It suits Jonathan's style well. The draped folds of the fabric are beautifully done.
