Just spent a really enjoyable day installing my work at the beautiful Doddington Hall for the forthcoming sculpture exhibition. I’m showing two of my more contemporary sculptures, The Tulip and Samarkand which aren’t featured on the website along with a swathe of The Wild Clematis seedheads.
More abstract and 3 dimensional than some of my other work. A Curvaceous design with long flowing curves using a mix of corten steel for the two faces with a contrasting mirror polished stainless steel outer edge and a brushed stainless steel inner edge, giving the piece an added sense of drama and depth.
Inspired by the stunning mosaics and architecture in Samarkand, an ancient city on the Silk Road in Uzbekistan. The mosaics being very structured in layout appealed to my graphics background where everything is meant to line up on a grid.
The sculpture consists of two interlocking pieces to form a self supporting cross shape. The first piece on show at Doddington has been created form thick 10mm steel to give to substance and is being allowed to rust naturally forming a richly coloured patina.
Both pieces are more bespoke and made to order and can be made from a range of materials and to a size to suit the intended position. If you are interested in either of the pieces please do drop get in touch.
Show opens 28th July till 9th September. Highly recommend the bacon butties from the cafe. For full details take a look at our Exhibition Diary
