The design aims to poetically characterize through kinetic and sculptural form the 'life cycle' using planting from the bog lands and wetlands of Ireland to display the interconnectivity of different elements within the cycle. For example - the fire burns in the centre, powering the revolving sculpture and the growing matter on the sculpture is in turn fed by the water that pours down around the centre.

The ponds are representative of two important environments that aim to characterise an important part of the Irish landscape with the sculpture also symbolizing these. The selected planting is based around plants commonly found, not necessarily indigenous but widespread in these two essential natural environments within Ireland, the wetlands and bog lands, and complimented by similar ornamental planting.

 

Peter Little has lived in West Cork for the last seven years, coming out here following love. He attempts to live a low impact lifestyle and follow his passions to create his art and designs. He has found the local environment and Ireland's natural beauty a great source of inspiration for his work. His sculptures are the result of a logical progression from fine art, through Blacksmithing and garden design to create Hortisculptures; interactive sculpture installations and gardens where the viewer is dwarfed by the work, and natural and man made forms are juxtaposed. The result creating something functional and beautiful. His work engenders appreciation of nature and seeks to highlight environmental issues.
