Inspiration for Sea Monster sprang from the elaborate and highly ornate Victorian bronze street lamps that illuminate long stretches of London’s River Thames Embankment. From a very young age the presence of these monstrous beasts, strewn in impressive numbers along the imposing banks of the famous River Thames, made a great impression on me, and I was always very keen to reacquaint myself with them whenever I found myself in the capitol. My interest was further heightened when years later I realized that Frome, the small town where Kris and I were living, deep in the heart of rural Somerset, was in fact the very place that produced not only these fantastic river’s edge streetlamps, but a great deal of the rest of the amazing bronze work I had often found myself admiring across the breadth of Central London.
