Mizushou is one of the Motion Series of sculptures. It joins other sculptures that include: Embark, Hansou, Kai, Kinpaku, Momentum, Motion, Nami 2, Oonami, Precipice, Skating, Soushi, Soushi2, Triptych, Ugokasu, Ukei,  and Uzushio.

Mizushou from the start was about ceaseless motion, slithering, and leaning.  The copper red color with the cream just intensifies that sensation.  Mizushou no matter how I tried, while carving, always was leaning precariously.  So I let him, since it seemed to be his nature. Mizushou is closely related to Soushi, Soushi2 Kinpaku, Ukei, and UzushioAll of them share the imminent peril from falling. 

About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone.  Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging.  Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the Motion Series A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base.  All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
