A plant shooting up from the ground and bursting into flower.

Such an elegant sculpture!

Moving upwards from a relatively simple base, the sculpture becomes more expansive and dynamic. Willard’s use of simple flowing lines keeps the sculpture feeling fluid and uncluttered and allows the viewer to enjoy the form and the incredible internal colour of the medium.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking green and yellow colouration. The colours in the stone are entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
