Both drawing and sculpture co-exist in Haysom's art practice. This drawing is from a series of twelve which the artist made in the Silver Gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum, December 2003. She made the outline of a monstrance (an ornate liturgical vessel with a glass disk that holds the sacramental host) without looking down at the paper, guided solely by her fingers following the circumference of the burnt hole. Haysom won the prestigious Jerwood Sculpture prize in 2007 for her proposal 'Spring', which was unveiled at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire in June 2008.
