This piece is quite literally a beacon of reflection. The polished surface reflects light and images from the surroundings, and is therefore always changing, yet always the same. 'Idyll' consists of a rhythmic interplay between solid form and open void created by free manipulation of easily constructed components. "I like form for its own sake," Paul Mount remarked, "whether it's in sculpture, design, music, architecture or painting."

Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.
