This sculpture has enormous personal significance.
I made ‘Mothers joy’ for myself after having my fifth child, early in my sculpting career. I wanted to express the joy I have at being a mother. Not always an easy task and certainly a thankless one by society but my children continue to bedazzle me with their amazing achievements. A mothers, and indeed a fathers, joy can be truly endless……..
We are loaned these precious gifts for an all too short a period with the sole job of preparing them for adulthood. Great sacrifices are inevitable but rich blessings are always hoped for.
