- a long plank balanced in the middle on a fixed support, on each end of which children sit and swing up and down by pushing the ground alternately with their feet.

A wandering of a maker’s mind ︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎︎
What if materials could speak ?
Would they have a voice ?
How would they converse when placed with another material ?
Do they sing, whisper, shout or groan ?
Does a surface feel ?
Is its’ skin as sensitive or more so than ours ?
Does it goosebump, shiver, its’ hairs stand on end ?
Does a shape have a taste ?
Does it engulf the flavour of its’ environment ?
Does it wrinkle its’ nose in disgust or close its’ eyes in pleasure ?
Can materials hold memory ?
Does its’ body recognise its’ owner ?
Do they greet a friendly hand with warmth ?

A bottom heavy sculpture,
Formed of materials to hand;
Build upwards, narrowing the structure at its peak.
No taller than your knee,
with space for an absent hand.
...Or maybe a thumb...Or a finger
I think this is a hardened surface of plaster,
A definitive blob of colour,
And the same hue as chewed bubblegum.
Smooth, Pat, Squidge, And blend.
Let the materials sit.
Let the materials cure.
Bound together, a formation
of materials which is now a sculpture.
