Un Ring: Thomas’ own Steel Arbour Design for Mullumbimby Sculpture Walk

An introduction to Thomas' winning steel arbour design sculptural art entry for the Mullumbimby Sculpture Walk

We are delighted to announce Thomas was awarded his first artist site for Mullum Sculpture Festival with his own design, entitled: Un Ring.

Thomas reputation for precision and finesse in his designs through to manufacturing processes set him apart. These fine skills were honed and ingrained during his training for his master craftsmen diplomas at Les Compagnons du Devoir, France.

The inaugural event ran concurrently with Mullum Music Festival and was an outstanding event in itself.

Thomas’ artist statement

The concept for this work came through researching circles. Circles appear in the earliest symbols and signs of our ancestors. Lots of cultures use circles to mean different things, but always it comes back to connection, unity. A Circle can also symbolise a doorway, or window, a view into another side of reality. In rituals, it often symbolises a rite of passage, and the circle holds great mystical significance.

I invite viewers to make their own interpretation about Un Ring’s meaning. They may even wish to create their own ritual when passing through Un Ring.
