When sculpting, I mostly have a clear image of the final piece, and can develop the sculpture from sketches and drawings. Occasionally, as with this piece, I engage with the steel to observe how the form changes when set.
When observed from close-up it is obvious that the sculpture is made up from a series of steel rings on a repeated pattern, but when observed from a distance an optical illusion occurs and the rings appear to merge into continuous ribbons of steel.
This illusion has influenced the title.
Each piece is handmade from mild steel, which ensures that each one is unique. The finished sculpture has a 280mm diameter and an overall height of approximately 1150mm. The sculpture is presented on a 450 x 450mm natural stone base. 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, allowing for the integration of customer-inspired variations. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
