This developed from an idea Guy has had for some time, 'a net with balls bursting through'.
When asked in 2016 to exhibit for a third time at NZ Sculpture on Shore, which is the main fund raising source for Women's Refuge he decided this work and name was appropriate. Some balls pushing against the net and some breaking through.
Each joint of puriri sticks in Breaking Point is scarved, glued with epoxy resin and screwed with stainless steel screws and caped with dowl. There are over 700 screws in this piece of work which makes it incredibly strong.
