Hepworth Pebble

by Gethin Thomas July. 11, 2021 161 views

When I stroll on the beach I always keep my eyes peeled for unusual stones. The beach just looks beige at a distance, but up close it is a rainbow of colours and patterns. Imagine my surprise when I spotted this little gem yesterday which must have been thousands of years in the making.

The sea had to grind it down to this size, score out the little hole and then find the perfect complimentary pebble to fit neatly inside.

Dame Jocelyn Barbara Hepworth DBE (10 January 1903 – 20 May 1975) was an English artist and sculptor. Her work exemplifies Modernism and in particular modern sculpture. Along with artists such as Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo, Hepworth was a leading figure in the colony of artists who resided in St Ives during the Second World War.

Thanks Chuck, one in a million chance to spot it. Actually one in infinity according to the theory of how many grains of sand there are on a beach.grinning
