‘Shepherd’s Sky Delight’


Shepherd’s Sky Delight is a depiction of the classic saying: “Red Sky at Night, Shepherd’s Delight.” Caitlin wanted to make a piece that paid homage to the wonderful sunsets she has seen over the years in Northern Ireland. The blues, pinks and yellows are colours perfectly suited to my material: Niobium. She wanted a group of objects so that it displayed the range of colours you see over the course of the sun setting. They work as a group of sculptural objects or as individual sculptures.

Materials: Silver and Niobium; Measurements: 65 x 65 x 40 mm

Please note, the price is per sculpture.
