A LOVELY COMMISSION

May 13, 2012

This commission was to commemorate the time spent in a German organisation by three people who were leaving at the same time. Three plaques, all with the same words.

Our discussions regarding content moved from a poem to the latin gratia and finally to gratitude.  The commission presented the opportunity of combining identical and different elements with different Scottish woods : ripple sycamore, cherry, ebonised oak and burry oak. Different sized plaques but all with approximately the same area, finished with an organic oil and beeswax.
