Referencing tools used in the textiles industry, such as bobbins and shuttles, the artist carved four sculptures out of local stone. A visit to the local museum in Milnsbridge, where a large number of original looms and other items are on display, provided a starting point for the designs. The stone pieces serve as a reminder of objects that once formed an important part of local life, while abstracting and exploring their shapes and forms, using the traditional techniques of stone carving. These have been installed alongside the River Walk in Milnsbridge, as part of the Sculpture Trail.
