Underwhelming


I was asked by a client to do a small installation using a lot of his left-over stone sets (cobbles)


It was difficult but I came up with an idea I thought might look good. 





We liked it for a while (I think having a lot more cobbles would have helped) but anyway three months later I got a phone call where in the conversation my client told me he thought the piece as a bit 'underwhelming' I agreed. 

He thought he would probably take it down to make room for a pebble sculpture. Was I okay with it?  Yes.

The beauty of not making things, especially art, out of reinforced concrete is that when something doesn't end up looking as fantastic as you or the client hoped, it can be changed without needing to have a wrecking crew come over in order to successfully demolish it.
