Inspiration for ‘Sketches in Steel’ as a body of work.
My journey into melting and casting metal proved pivotal in my growth. Realising that metal can become a liquid acted as a point of questioning and personal unleashing. Moving through the knowledge of a process into deeper understanding, lead to my questioning of everything. The impossible was now possible.
I have a drive to create forms which capture fluidity, often in material associated with rigid physical properties.
‘Sketch 1’ is the first exploration into this. Manipulating steel into a continuous fluid form which explores the lines between sculpture and design, function and pure aesthetic.
The physical impacts of light upon ‘sketch 1’ alters the initial point of viewer interaction, guiding a journey through the form.
Sharing visual characteristic with conventional lighting serves as a point of contrast, highlighting light for the piece not light for the viewer.
