"Bridges to Horizons"

Marcus Aurelius:-

"You consist of three things only, your body, your life, your mind;

only the last is subject wholly to your control. All else is mere smoke"

The Möbius strip was by now a well loved friend. ETERNITY was a solid stable form. I wanted to create something fluid and spacious around a triangle. It was to symbolise the JOURNEY through life which we all make, and which is so full of opportunities. I see the central space in this sculpture as the triangle of ETERNITY, but the sides have been shot off into `space', to form `bridges to horizons'. Already the `horizons' have expanded to the moon. I am sure Man's Destiny includes `space'.
