A unique free-standing sculpture. Powder-coated steel, printed, tinted and textured glass. 1890 (h) x 1540 (w) x 840 (d) mm

The sculpture unites three women for whom Penwith had a strong emotional charge. The form is taken directly from Hepworth’s ‘Itea’ print from her Aegean Suite. One of the two Mên-an-Tol images is from Daphne du Maurier's book ‘Vanishing Cornwall’ 1967. Virginia Woolfe’s novel ‘To the Lighthouse’ lies behind the choice of the image of Godrevy lighthouse, which mirrors the form of the Mên-an-Tol.  My feeling for the landscape I travel between my home and my studio is tinted by the works of these woman.
