‘Symphony of the bull’ was originally made for a presentation for BMW in Munich / Germany. The work is designed to replicate the form and structure of a bull, bringing forth the elegance and rhythms of the anatomy of the creature while creating almost architectural lines. When displayed in the landscape, the materiality of the piece, the lines and elegance of the form and the approachability of the work sit beautifully within nature. The piece reflects the industrialisation of nature and animals, hence the choice of steel and the asymmetric approach. Overall, the combination of graceful lines and natural structures results in a symphony of form.

Grazing wildflower meadows are of major importance to fauna and natural habitats. The abundance of colour, the vibrance and the textures are inviting to all. Adding the ever-changing colours of the corten against the life cycle of the meadow planting compliment each other beautifully.
