Tongue In Cheek By Tony Cragg
The creation of these hollow, perforated surfaces is a unique technique developed by Cragg to create an unusual surface quality, one which intentionally decreases the weight of the bronze from which it is made. Although a very machined finish the overall shape for me has an organic quality with its curved edges. The bronze was a great choice of material for this particular piece with its huge contrast to the environment but still holding a mild reflective quality which mildly draws in its surroundings a beautiful example of a sculpture that inspires me.
