“A mollusc presents itself to human perception as two entities: an architectural structure of mathematical subtlety and a living form that is protean, visceral and sensuous. Made from a log containing the juncture of trunk and branches and so needing much hollowing if it were not to split in the process of seasoning, my sculpture aims to combine these two characteristics in one shape.” Hugo Powell
