I have been looking closer at the textures and patterns found in tumbled shells, pebbles and rocks. I've tried to interpret a variety of familiar patterns and shapes into a form that is both pleasing to hold and touch as well as to look at. The idea originated from a popular past time for many of picking up pebbles from the beach and simply holding them and looking at them. One of life's simple pleasures.
The Abstract III large, is taken from a series of three smaller ones that I did which depicts time passing and the erosion of surfaces. This one is the last of the three and so shows the most erosion and change.
I make my sculptures first in clay and then cold cast in bronze and resin. These sculptures are of the highest quality finish and great care and time is taken to achieve this.
I can provide a variety of finishes such as aluminium 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. Can it be used as a garden sculpture?
A. Yes the sculpture is completely frost-proof making it suitable for the garden. Due to the almost solid bronze outer layer, it does react with the weather and can, as solid bronze, develop verdigris. This can be cleaned off very gently 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 surface. If placed outside is advisable to polish the sculpture with pure bees wax once a year.
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.
