This is an aluminium hand formed sculpture that’s finished in a shimmering bronze colour.
ABOUT THIS SCULPTURE
Out of all the sculptures I have done this is my favourite.
I’m not sure if it’s the height of it that gets me or the drop-dead gorgeous colour. Mind you then there’s the spectacular shapes I have created to consider too.
The mixture of sharp and soft edges really appeal to me and I deliberately wanted to include both aspects in the same piece. I love the whole concept of opposites and their relationships to each other.
The sheer depth of tonal ranges in this piece defies belief. There’s everything from copper to gold and from auburn to candy apple. Get some sunlight on it and it literally lights up like a Christmas tree.
I can definitely feel my sculptures evolving and in this piece I think they’ve moved significantly. It’s designed to be freestanding so is happy to sit atop any console table or unit.
After forming the basic shape it’s left to cool; then it’s tidied and smoothed using abrasive wheels and polishing pads. From there it’s shot-blasted and acid-dipped to remove impurities on the surface.
After that it’s coated in a chrome base coat then that incredible toffee-apple bronze effect finish is applied and baked before being treated to two coats of UV-resistant lacquer.
This magnificent sculpture is 100% original and entirely hand-made by me. Nothing is cast, moulded or replicated. Includes a signed and hologramed Certificate of Authenticity.
