Tabitha Sheen Davis` sculpture reflects an intense relationship between the artist and the material with which she is working. This relationship is based on her reactions and responses to the material, the marks she makes in it, and her own ideas and inspirations. She says that she continues to learn about herself and her materials as the relationship progresses. Every piece Tabitha creates is an experiment. She is never sure of exactly what she is going to do, or how it will change her or her work. She never knows, at the beginning of the proc...

A vital element in my process of working is the contrast and comparison of the found organic form with the sculpted form. I enjoy that contrast, and use it to draw attention to my perception of the inherent beauty that is native to the materials with which I work. In Ammonite, I left much of the front of the piece in its natural state, only sculpting the interior of the spiral. The rough texture, uneven surface, and varied coloring in the unworked stone contrast sharply with the smoothly polished shine of the sculpted areas. The differing textures emphasize the spiral shape and make the form more engaging to the touch

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
