Beau Lyday Farmstead Studios
My inspiration for this work was the cathedral of St. Peter in Beauvais France, What fascinated me about this cathedral's rose window was the organic quality of the design. There is a strong mandala feel to this motif.
I used the core pattern to make my piece. It also reminded me of Celtic knot patterns. The shapes combine to form hearts, flower petals, and a continuous intertwining ribbon. It just depends on how you look at it. That is the joy of the piece for me.
This work can been seen at Anvil Arts Sculpture Garden & Gallery
