Uzushio 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.

Something about Uzushio was strange from the beginning; the sculpture wanted to lean back and also curve back on itself.  This is one of those sculptures that no matter what I wanted to do, it had it's own mind.  The sooner I figured that out the quicker the sculpture would get through.  Uzushio is closely related to Soushi, Soushi2 Kinpaku, Mizushou, 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.
