Music of the Spheres

Music of the Spheres

This is my interpretation of Pythagoras's Music of the Spheres. He used astrology to help determine pitch and octave, where the stars and immortals existed in the 'highest heavens'.

The Opening of Spring Cottage Cafe

The Opening of Spring Cottage Cafe

The clock commemorates the opening of a cafe. It has a beautiful grand trine in the earth signs.

Chinese Taurean Lady

Chinese Taurean Lady

This lady wanted a very clean and simple look to her chart. All crystals are clear but colour is seen in the delicate light refraction that they are known for.

Forgiveness Week.jpg

Commissioned by Blackburn Cathedral in support of Forgiveness Week. The photo was taken in winter and you can see the long reflection of the glass on the floor as the Sun lies low in the afternoon sky.

A split in time and space

A split in time and space

Imagine that time and space split to reveal a world beneath, seen through the porthole of a spaceship. This crosses over the boundaries of known astronomy to the genre of sci-fi, where possibilities and potentials built upon knowledge of what we already have, see glimpses of other dimensions.

Presents for Twins

Presents for Twins

The white clock is for a girl, the black clock is for a boy. Born a minute apart there are still astrological differences that were given in the written explanation.

Wedding Present.

Wedding Present.

The only surviving photograph of a commission commemorating a marriage that took place 26.1.2013, Lancashire. That day in the skies directly above lay the constellation Cygnus. With pinpoint accuracy due to correct times and location, they married under Messier Object 39. This is particularly apt for when swans (Cygnus) find a mate it is for life. Cygnus flies over a river of light, the light of the Milky Way
