A visitor to the studio

There were some friends of another studio member being shown round Luneside Studios and and one of them homed in on my space. It turned out she loved sculpture. She had a look at several pieces then commented, "They're all religious pieces, aren't they?"
"Fair comment,"  I said by way of reply and added, "but not of any particular religion. I am  a religious person but prefer not to make a statement relative to any specific faith."
For a long time I have tried to avoid any religiosity in my work but it shows anyway so now I just make the work and if those who look at it see a religious message then so be it. But it is not deliberate.
