Emma Homfray presents her first collection of sculpture for Pieces of Eight Gallery.
"I sat at my work table and made these pieces rather spontaneously in wax and then cast them in bronze. Some were cast as a whole piece and some are cast bronze components welded together. I finished them in hand applied 24 carat gold leaf to bring out the softness of the forms and use onyx gems as black eyes, black sun, black centre of the cross. They naturally contain many of the motifs that are often repeated in my work - the cross, snake, sun, mask, flower, heart and tree."
