Arriving at Whites Beach in New Zealand just before sunset I had little time to make a sculpture. What I found was a natural readymade location. Where the tide had receded at the point where a small stream ran around rocks on the beach, there were perfect scalloped shapes in the sand at the edge of the water. I searched and found smooth rounded stones which I laid beside the scallop shapes on the sand to form a partial circle. The details in the sand were beautiful so I avoided footsteps by standing in the stream to work.
The resulting image made as the sun went down is one of stillness and calm. The stream winding into the distant ocean is a metaphor for the eternal cycles of life.
