Kate Edwards artwork for ROCLA – Intersection
Inspired by research at Redhouse Park, Linford Lakes Nature Reserve and looking at Water Lilies floating in the water that reflected the sky, Kate has produced a beautiful sculpture called Intersection made from copper with stainless steel details to give integral strength and to increase durability. Solar power provides subtle lighting. Considering the structure of the bulrush, using strong vertical detail that is softened by filigree details and engravings and textured surfaces. Watching dragonfly’s wings catch the light as they zip over the water. This local natural environment has directly influenced the design made of metal and materials that will patinate through time to a form a beautiful verdigris. Exposure to the environment will enable the piece to evolve and mature alongside the space in which it sits.
