Bronze and steel - 29x14x10cm
The bronze piece was created by fixing ash keys to a wooden frame which was cast directly (not moulded) which means that they are not complete keys where they have not fully burnt out or are too thin for the bronze to reach. This creates a totally unique and unrepeatable piece. It uses the unusual combination of polished bronze forms with the contrasting colour and texture of a rusted sheet of steel.
The cast bronze feature is patinated blue, green and yellow with the tips of the keys polished back to the metal (gold coloured). It sits between rusted steel rectangular tubes on a sheet steel base which have all been sealed and varnished to prevent further rusting. There is felt on the bottom to protect your surfaces.
Suitable for indoor use only, but can be placed in full sun.
