"A couple of years ago Matthew Perry did some tests for me to find out whether we could twist small pieces of wood reliably and accurately. One of the samples is of five 30cm lengths of ash, 1.5 x 1.5 cm section, each twisted end to end through 180, three right-handed, two left-handed. The five pieces are held at each end between short lengths of wood. It’s a wonderfully simple object – really just a test – but I liked its subtlety so much that I always wanted to make it an edition. Cast in concrete it loses none of that simplicity and also becomes both statuesque and wonderfully reminiscent of the richness of cast concrete on brutalist architecture." Richard Deacon, 2015
