4mm rope --16 cms. diameter; 3mm rope--11 cms. diameter; 1.5mm --8.5cms. diameter; .081mm--3 cms. diameter, 2001

Statement:
Some of my work has been influenced by grids, fences and scaffolding. I am particularly interested in the dramatic shadows cast by the basket and the way that the stack of grids changes from two to three dimensions as the viewer moves around the bowl.
