Plateau

Plateau, 2003
The Pavilions, Southampton, UK 

 Commissioned by Bryant Homes and Southampton Council 

At the centre are three large Portland stone carvings set in a 2m diameter pool. Water flows over a low carved wall into a second pool and on through a series of Purbeck stone channels radiating from the centre. Small river stones in the pools and gullies create an ecosystem for water plants that are lit at night from below.

This sculpture reflects an enduring fascination with landscape and the interactions between the elements of earth and water, contained within symbolic images of form and transformation: mountains and rising water at the centre, with a plateau eroded into intricate patterns stretching to an imaginary horizon. The interactions between these elements are designed to create an environment of both stillness and movement.

Material: Portland, Purbeck & York stone
Dimensions: 10 x 5 x 3 metres
