“The start of my sequence has calmness, stillness, beginnings and birth. As the title states, the figure also represents a bud. Having finished the figure, I began creating the new leaf surface, the recesses also formed part of the texture. I wanted the figure in a curled up position, but one that couldn’t be maintained for too long, so the bud is ready to unfurl at any moment.”
The concept of this piece led to the British Diving Association commissioning Jonathan to create small diving trophies to be used as major annual awards.
