Exploring Nature and Pattern Through Art

The Water Cycle

'Nature Water' is a sculpture in the Ruskin gallery, made by Keiko Mukaide.

The sculpture shows water in its different forms, known as the water cycle. Look closely at the sculpture. What forms of water can you see?

Rain, snow, mist, clouds and sea. There is also a rainbow, and bubbles and waves in the sea. If you look really carefully you might even be able to see the wind.

Touch the sculpture. How does it feel?

Look for patterns in the sculpture. What can you see?

The artist looked at the Ruskin gallery and noticed that it was full of nature. She wanted to create a sculpture that showed pattern, growth, light, colour and water. Can you see all these things in her sculpture?
