Pendulum – gymnast

Bronze, marble
Edition of 15
Height 75cm

This piece was designed as a commission for a client who wanted sculpture of a male gymnast doing parallel bars.  After much research and several drawings we settled on this pose of gymnast about to swing down and through the bars; we liked the feeling of suspense and energy just before the swing. I then designed an alternative shape to the parallel bars to accentuate the momentum of the figure. The figure and rings are both cast in bronze and then mounted on a marble base, 30cm square.
