The inspiration behind Emma came from reading an article about a series of experiments by Princeton psychologists. They revealed that all it takes is a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger from their face and that longer exposures do not significantly alter those impressions.
Facing this sculpture, the silhouette is apparent, but if one were to view it from the side, would the impression be the same?
Each piece is handmade from mild steel, which ensures that each one is unique. The finished sculpture has a width and depth of 160mm. The sculpture is presented on a 300mm x 300mm natural stone plinth and a 150mm x 150mm oak column. The portrait has a height of 450mm, and the overall mounted sculpture height is 1500mm. The sculpture is made of mild steel with a lacquer coating applied after oxidization, allowing the piece to mellow with age. Each piece is named, signed, and numbered.
All the pieces are designed to be weather resistant, allowing for outside display throughout the year.
Each piece is individually designed and handmade, which allows for the integration of customer-inspired variations. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
