U Bend was a commission for a private client. I want to continue the theme of the erythrocyte but push the platelet form. Red blood cells contort into amazing twisted shapes that can be seen with SEM microscope. These are very sculptural. I wanted to bend and twist the erythrocyte shape I had been working with. U Bend is carved from one block of red travertine, the perimeter conforming to the edge of the stone block.
