Angle of repose is the maximum angle of a stable slope of granular particles.

The concept of repose as a measureable attribute is intriguing

and has engaged my work for a number of years.

Pins 1 to 4 were conceived to integrate gemstones and aspects of their history

The series began with the piece that was awarded the Steel Trophy in 1984.
