Dominic and Frances developed this sculpture in response to an invitation from the Bernardaud Foundation in Limoges, France, in 2014. The female and male forms in the sculpture were first sculpted in clay by Dominic and Frances. Each piece is then cast from English fine bone china, so that the light not only reflects from and around the figures, but also illuminates the translucent body of china.
Men and women lifted to a higher level, unencumbered by the trappings of life, breathing in a moment of calm. Ascension harnesses the inner peace in all of us and allows for internal reflection.
