I came home from the US launch of serpentine loop to find artist Aileen Penner had spent part of her two weeks house-sitting creating pieces in our backyard. One of these she left as a gift. Aileen, who skated competitively in her youth, based the piece on my book. I think she captured the layering of ice perfectly. I love the texture – and the fact she used ball point pen! Up close the piece smells of beeswax.
