The propellor blade form in my Icarus piece recurs here. I originally developed this form as part of a small bronze designed for the RNLI, for their use as a Supporters Award. Outrig develops this idea combined with some further boat shapes. There is also a signicant influence of Henry Moore’s work visible here. Moore was the titan of the sculpture world when I was a student. His work affected everyone, whether to inspire or to react against. To me, Moore’s work and ideas like the importance of “monumentality” in sculpture, have been an inspiration.
