With a month still to go before I actually get on a plane to China, work already commenced on my sculpture titled ‘Black Moon Trickle’.
The sculpture in black granite will be placed in the City of Jimo.
It was a pleasant surprise to receive an invitation to come to China in April. Chris will make a large scale granite sculpture, approximately 4 m3 in size for Jimo City (Qingdao). Chris is looking forward to this new adventure. It has been a longtime desire to set foot on Chinese soil. Photo’s of my time spend there will be posted on the website. If you want to stay updated, sign up for the newsletter.
Chris is pleased to announce that he has been elected a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. The letter he received stated the following:
‘Congratulations on your recent election as a Fellow of the RBS. This celebrates the commitment you have made to sculpture and to the Society and recognises the focus and quality of your work. You are now entitled to use the letters FRBS after your name. ‘

The design BLACK BOX made it to the last group of thirty proposals for the Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay Commission (UK). The design consisted of high polished black granite sculptures which contained technology inside of them that enabled the public to receive information on their smartphones and at the same time, actively contribute to the work. The black boxes would be placed as a ribbon along the lagoon. The selected proposals were published in a book and presented at the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts.
