Roger Asbury Awardees

RAAs

The Roger Asbury Award
for outstanding service to the Rotary Club of Cambridge
was established by our Club as a recognition of individuals who have significantly contributed to the work of the Club over an extended period. The Sculpture is a portrait of potential energy and hopefully reflects the efforts of a person who has inspired others with acts of kindness. The Roger Asbury Award shall be awarded to others who may deserve the honour of being recalled as a selfless and wholly generous person.

The sculptor was Matthew Sanderson, son of one of our members. Matthew wrote this about the sculpture:

"This hand woven hemisphere is made from over three hundred metres of pure copper wire. The dendritic web's individual components rely on their neighbours as might the nerves of ones hand or the streams of a river delta. Accentuated depth, lamination and direction adds qualities of speend and flow to the surface. By graduating the strands very delicate structures can be formed using wire as fine as a hair. The surface has been acid stripped and plated with nickel to resist oxidation.

"The centre of the from is a double skinned orb, behind it a comets tail. From here the web rappels upwards and outwards to form a new perimeter cell wall. This structure is a portraite of potential energy and hopefully relects the efforts of a man who has inspired others with his acts of kindness.

 The Roger Asbury Award shall be reawarded to others who may deserve the honour of being recalled as a selfless and wholely generous person."
