Purtle

Commissioned by the Caravan Stage Theatre Company for the front of their boat, the ‘Amara Zee’. This piece crafted from stainless steel and brass, it combines three elements; the sea turtle, representing the slow and majestic boat that is now its home, a Clydsdale horse, as these were the wonderful beasts that used to pull the company’s performance caravans; and finally the decaying wings taken from an imagined fantastical creature, eluding to freedom and expression.
