Sculpture description:
Tsuru is Japanese for the crane bird which is one of the longest living species of bird. It symbolizes peace, health, fertility and longevity in Asian culture. The sculpture echoes the setting of the Zen garden in Auchendarroch House. The garden layout is in the shape of a crane bird designed by professor Fukuhara of Nagoya University and completed in a teaching workshop.
Artist's comments:
"I took part in the zen garden workshop by Professor Fukuhara. The work is a response to this contemplative space. The balance of negative space is vital in Japanese aesthetics. I seek to embrace this spatial balance in Tsuru, by creating a line drawing with bronze to form the sculpture."

"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."
