Silver SeaBird

1981
silver and marble
330 x 305 (d) mm

"By shining a light on Silver SeaBird,
so that it threw shadows onto the
wall, I rotated the sculpture and drew
around them on a piece of paper.
Many of the resulting silhouettes have
become sculptures in their own right.
See MantaBird and Whale
Form II.

SeaBird VIII is the same
shape as Silver SeaBird but built up
in another material and cast in bronze."
