Hilary's sculptures bring together things that inspire her in the natural world and mankind’s interaction with it.

She has a small orchard where she grows a number of different varieties of apple which mature over a 6 month period; inspired by their flavours, colours, and textures, these steel apples are her reflection of this wealth of variety. They are made by free modelling stainless steel which is made up in the patchwork craft tradition; putting stray pieces of material together, each one cut, fitted, and welded into position.

Size: Diameter 1200mm x Height 1000mm.

Materials: Stainless steel with inlaid grey smalti glass mosaic.
