Nyneve

Previous
Inspired by the idea of the Lady of the Lake, Nyneve represents something man-made coming out of serene nature. Defiant and resolute, it is born of nature and symbolises purity.Scroll for more
Nyneve shard sculpture
Pointed top of Nyneve

Nyneve is a 3.5 metre silicon bronze sculpture. The piece references the form of a leaf, with its purifying and filtering qualities.

Its organic shape, cast in bronze and polished to a warm golden glow, features a vein-like texture inspired by the fluid flow of tree bark. Its skyward reaching aerofoil form plays with the eddying air around it, whilst giving the illusion of a twisting upward flow.

In the Savills and David Harber Garden at RHS Chelsea 2019, Nyneve was presented emerging from a body of water, where its mirrored reflection is mimicked by dozens of fluttering leaf-like stainless steel petals. These kinetic floating petals create ripples of reflected light as they shimmer across the surface.
