I count things all the time. Washing off the line, steps around the garden , all sorts of things. Numbers used to be a fairly important part of my life ( when I did sciences and civil engineering) but now I usually only use them for counting.I started on these numbers in 2019 but only got 2 finished. This year I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do with them and this tower form seems just right. We all countdown to something.. and sometimes the actual event doesn’t quite match the expectation. Hence my smallish boom after the big numbers. Still this is a lovely tall piece (and at present I can still lift it).
