Riverbank followed in the sculptural footsteps of a small series of work I did in 2017. I had the ring rolled at a local metalworks and then designed a two sided landscape to fill it. Much of the infill is recycled metal and offcuts and I delight in the challenge of repurposing them for my sculptural pieces. I chose a landscape theme for its initial siting at Lardner Park and the basic design ( apart from being heavy) is in the circular form to suit the range of activities that will go on around it . It also has a link with the great tradition of Australian landscapes and the circular form also echoes a view through a telescope or the sense that a small patch of the earth is home.
