'LumenEssence' was created for Salthouse 08: SEAhouse, LIGHThouse, SPIRIThouse exhibition at Salthouse Church. It suggests a lighthouse beacon, echoing Salthouse as a 'beacon church', it also refers to bioluminescence. This is mainly seen in deep-sea plankton, but can be seen in octopods (the sculpture could suggest an octopus). LumenEssence is a environmental light sculpture, which is suspended and uses low energy LEDs and fibre optics combined with using translucent waste plastics (bottles). It has been possible through funding from Arts Council England, East (Grants for the Arts) and Norfolk County Council (Arts Project Fund).
