As I live next to the sea I get a lot of my inspiration and ideas from the patterns and texture I see there. I really wanted to make this sculpture to show movement, flowing lines. As the name suggests, I was thinking about waves in the sea gently moving over each other. The texture is a repetitive layering of clay that builds up in areas. Much like waves in the sea the texture flows over the sculpture creating a gentle layered affect.
The base is a well made and finished black slate with a subtle lined pattern running over it.
I make the sculptures first in clay and then cold cast each addition in aluminium and resin. Each one is unique as they are finished by hand using several stages before the final cold cast aluminium finish is achieved. 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 bronze, iron or copper. If you would like the sculpture to be cast in an alternative finish then please don't hesitate with your request.
Frequently asked questions
Q. Do they weather with age?
A. The sculptures are completely frost-proof making them suitable for the garden. They can be cleaned if required by using a small "wash up" sponge. The rough side of the sponge 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 or hard wax once a year. Simply spray or brush on with a decorators brush. Then wait for the wax to dry before gently buffing the surface.
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, base or pushed into the ground to give it stability.
Q. Ordering sculptures?
A. Ordering an additional sculpture in aluminium or another finish such as bronze or rusted iron for example has a lead-time of approximately 6 weeks.
