A home sculpture commissioned by Local Heroes to coincide with the Berlin/Glasgow European Championships and exhibited for 16 days at Made in Glasgow by Local Heroes July-Aug 2018. The method for assembling each of Gabriella’s sculptures is simple; after threading wooden parts along a wire, use your intuition to find the precise balancing point.

Materials: Steel wire and Valchromat recycled wood.
