Growth spiral

Abstract: Ken Drew lives and works in Blackrock, Dublin and is active both as a teacher and artist. He works in a variety of materials including wood, aluminium, copper, bronze and composites from small studio pieces to larger outdoor forms. 'Growth Spiral' draws its inspiration from plant growth patterns and in particular, phototropism where the plant follows the path of the sun. 'Growth Spiral's sinuous form reflects this concern.
