The Three Pears - model 1

The first model addressed the interlocking arrangement of the 'pears'. It investigated the dynamic quality of this feature whilst ensuring a balance was achieved and the visual arrangement of the 'pears' was satisfactory from all angles. The main support was given little consideration at this stage.

Materials: Medium density fibreboard (three pears and base), beech (main support and plinth), glue. Dimensions: 500 x 500 x 300 mm approx.

Model 1

Structural supports for the three pears - between the creation of models one and two, the artist created a model exploring a design for the supports structures from an earlier design on paper. Materials: Medium density fibreboard (support structures and base), English oak (supports structures), glue and screw fixings. Dimensions: 500 x 500 x 200 mm approx.
