Blue Moon is a continuation of Munro’s experimentation with the spherical form. During a first visit to Cheekwood in 2013 he had an instinctive reaction to the formality of the gravel lake at the centre of the Japanese Garden, adjacent to the Pavilion.  Within this intimate space, set in a valley of rounded hills, Munro saw the next space for the piece Blue Moon to inhabit positioned as if floating in the ‘lake’. The gentle movement of light within the ‘moon’ plays shadows over the intricately dry raked gravel that surrounds it. Of the piece Munro says “my hope was to create a piece that extended the sense of calm within the space.”
