See Ukei in Hypothetical Business & Residential Settings

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

Ukei from the start was about controlled falling.  Ukei no matter how I tried, while carving, always was leaning precariously.  So I let him, since it seemed to be his nature.  Ukei is closely related to Soushi, Soushi2, Kinpaku, Uzushio, and Mizushou.  All 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.
