Single Twist – Spiral wairori
1.(verb) to turn round, twist, screw.
I created this after studying a double twist and liked the challenge of creating just one of the twists, as well as the symmetrical problem it presented.
A sturdy sculpture that complements the natural forms in the garden and reminds me of the Salix Babylonica - 'Tortuosa' (Twisted Willow).
Marion sees this as a 'garden fixture' now, so happy to sculpt another one to order.
In snow last year:
Sprung Single Twist
The challenge here was recreating the Single Twist, but emphasizing the effect of ‘someone’ pulling the coils of a spring from the top. Like a slinky, the top coils are further apart than the lower ones creating an illusion of ‘stretch’.

Looking down through the middle of the twist, you can see the spirals coming up from the base.
