Copper pipe, braze weld, applewood
I started the piece in late 2018, shortly after the passing of my mum. It’s my first venture into the human form, and I wanted to capture the feeling of loneliness I had at the time. I made a prerequisite that I could only use what materials I had at hand. I was doing a house renovation at the time, hence the copper plumbing pipe and electrical wire, and my work as an orchardist provided the applewood.
