'Curvation- medium' As with the larger Curvation sculpture my inspiration was taken from the moon and sun setting on the sea. Curling waves and the effect of the water's smoothing affect on objects. I live on the coast and am inspired by the wonderful textures found along the coastline and the movement of the water along the shoreline. There is a wonderful array of patterns and textures found worn into shells and pebbles that I like to use as a way of invoking memories of the beach.
The sculpture sits very nicely in an outdoor setting amongst plants or perhaps as a feature on a patio. It also looks wonderful indoors and gives the added benefit of being able to touch the sculpture and feel the texture.
I make my sculptures first in clay and then cold cast in bronze and resin. Each one is unique as they are finished by hand using several stages before the final cold cast bronze with wax patina finish is achieved. These sculptures are of the highest quality finish and great care and time is taken to achieve this.
Whilst a bronze finish has always been the first choice for sculptures, I can provide a variety of finishes such as aluminium, iron or copper. If you would like the sculpture to be cast in an alternative finish then please don't hesitate with your request. I would be happy to arrange this.
Frequently asked questions
Q. Do they weather with age?
A. The sculptures are completely frost-proof making them suitable for the garden. Due to the almost solid bronze outer layer, they do react with the weather and can, as solid bronze, develop verdigris. This can be cleaned off if required by using a small "wash up" sponge with a rough side to it. This will highlight the metal.
Q. What about after care?
A. Do not use strong detergents or chemical cleaners, as this will destroy the patination. It is advisable to polish them with pure bees wax once or twice a year.
Q. Securing the sculpture?
A. The sculptures are made with a threaded nut encapsulated in the base where a threaded rod can be screwed into the base. The sculpture can then be fixed into a pedestal or pushed into the ground to give it stability.
Q. Ordering sculptures?
A. Ordering an additional sculpture in bronze or another finish such as aluminium or rusted iron for example has a lead-time of 6 weeks.
