A couple dancing together – Charles has seen ballroom dancing on the TV, ‘Strictly’ gets everywhere!

They share one head, the loop at the top; the twisting movement below shows the way they sway together as they dance.

Charles was a new addition to Guruve’s gallery last year and all his pieces sold within a few months. If you like his work, do also browse works by Peter Gwisa – very similar style but working in different parts of the country so we can be sure there’s no cross-fertilisation!

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking pale green and yellow colouration.

The colours in the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax. The lines you can see are part of the natural serpentine stone – they are not cracks or lines of weakness.
