Bronze and steel - 36x12x5cm
Unique sculpture in layered rusted steel with cast bronze centrepiece. Inspired by microscopic images of pollen grains and layering similar to contours on a map. This wall mounted piece has surprising depth created by shadows from the different elements and uses the unusual combination of a polished bronze form with the contrasting colour and texture of rusted sheets of steel.
The cast bronze feature is a unique cast, patinated blue and yellow with the tips of the spikes and edge of the hole polished back to the metal (gold coloured). It sits on a black painted steel sheet, with two layers of rusted steel sheets around it which have been sealed and varnished to prevent further rusting. These are separated by wooden spacers. There is a hole in the centre of the back to hang this piece on a nail or screw, with rubber buffers to raise it off the wall. Bronze care instructions are also affixed to the back.
Suitable for indoor use only, but can be hung in full sun.
