Invited to exhibit the sculpture “Touching Earth and Sky”, at Cass Sculpture Foundation, Goodwood, (2010-12) Cowan selected an area of beech trees in which to site the work. The two bronze shapes originated from moving the profile of a beech tree branch through a cone and a sphere. The inner and outer profiles of branch growth appeared like baroque cornices ringing both forms. Commissioned originally for Cowleaze Forest (1991), where Cowan selected a small flint pit circled by beech trees for its melancholy, the work echoed the chance discovery that its location was also that of a crashed plane in the Second World War.
