I am drawn to the physical presence of these terracotta pieces, with their thoughtful curves and earthy formation speaking to a sense of beauty depicted in the natural world. The feminine form of this trio of works brings texture and aesthetic appeal, and I love that their influences will surely stimulate conversation. I imagine this set taking a prominent display position in a neutral and minimalist interior, where their texture and tone can command attention.

Sydelle’s refined palette and beautiful organic forms effortlessly illustrate Mother, Maiden and Crone. As current interiors favour the natural and organic, these sculptures would feel at home in many interior schemes. I would place them in a contrasting scheme to show them to their best effect. In a large contemporary home, where the architecture is quite boxy and has many hard finishes, placed in the living room with views to the water. Polished concrete floors, a large modular sofa with tight upholstery; box shaped resin side tables and a custom wool, silk and hemp rug in muted earth tones for a connection to the organic. I would keep the room minimal and with little ornamentation, like the works themselves.
