Watch a 20 second video of the Precipice Sculpture
 

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

With Precipice, I wanted to carve a large, outdoor sculpture that had imminent drama to it. . Precipice is closely related to Kai, Motion, and Nami 2  All four deal with ceaseless motion like ocean waves.  Never ending,  tireless motion.  Precipice brings up the feeling of emotion washing over and engulfing you.  Unlike Nami 2  which is more gentle, Precipice implies a louder bigger splash.  Instead of engulfing you it consumes you.

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.
