Over The Moon
A collaboration with the stone carver Emma Lavander and architectural designer Thomas Kendall.
This piece is a kinetic chandelier based on the nursery rhyme “Hey diddle diddle”. It contains a hand-carved cows head in English Alabaster, a cast milk bottle (resin and onyx powder) and a fin of book binding leather in the 2D form of a jump. Each of the three items is held in perfect balance by a series of brass rods, each of which also holds a moon for the cow to jump over. Previous pieces had led us down a lunar path and so when someone jokingly said, “I know, how about The Cow that Jumped Over the Moon.” What started as a joke gradually became a serious conversation and finally this mobile illumination.
