Ships in the Night

Kansas Creme Limestone / 43 x 7 x 13″

Ships in the Night, Mouse Snow Tunnels

I carved Ships in the Night during the summer of 2006, and it has occupied a variety of locations through the years – all of them outside.

For several years it served to divide, and calm, the exuberant waters of the Woody Creek as it floods into the garden.

Consequently it boasts a rich Kansas Crème trademark ‘Cotswold’ patina, a rare rough-edged bottom, along with a budding colony of moss on its shady side, and around the water line.

It might just be a little unkind to point out the accelerated ageing effect that time has incurred,  but as we are talking about Kansas Crème Limestone, this is precisely the rough-bottomed, ‘ancientness’ that I had in mind when I set about carving this piece.

As it was created to stand in water, as the name suggests, this very tough piece of sculpture will thrive almost anywhere; wet or dry, blistering hot or sub-zero cold,  and will only continue to mellow and mature still further, with each season’s passage.
