My first commissioned work, was to create a visualisation of the ethics of good maternity care for a graduating midwife; a gift from her proud husband. The concept formed in my mind of a pair of competent female hands enveloping an expectant mother as she awaits with both anticipation, and some trepidation, the event of birth. His comment. “ I think K was a little overwhelmed, as the sculpture really identifies with the essence of her practice and her perspective on serving women during their pregnancy” A practice work in soft limestone was made ,to get a feel of the concept. The final work gave me a great sense of satisfaction, as did it’s acceptance by the client!
