“Seeing a Manta ray in the wild is still on my ‘to do’ list. I have dived in many places around the world and have had several near misses, but so far they have remained elusive. From my point of view, the next best thing is to sculpt one. Here I have produced a stylised sculpture, making use of the contemporary look of plywood to accentuate the beautiful lines”.
