I know that I need to introduce something of height in the space, and worked with a variety of materials to produce a free standing sculpture.
I do not like the white pipe used above because it is too plain and has no character. However, I do enjoy the lotus leaves on the pipe, so I changed the pipe for an aluminium rod that I bent in a way to be self balancing.
In order to maintain the balance of the work, I needed to alter the rotation of the lotus leaves so that the weight was fairly evenly distributed. This was trickier than one presumes!
