the tulip

The Tulip sculpture is one that I have been working on during the winter. A little more abstract than some of my other work but still with the strong, graphical, curvaceous lines that I love so much, a design that’s been hidden away in my sketch book for sometime. The piece also differs from much of my other work having a greater depth making it a little more three dimensional, especially when edged with a different, contrasting material to the faces.

.

Over the winter months i’ve worked on refining the designs, turning sketches into reality and the first two pieces have been constructed to a height of 2.1 meters using a mix of corten steel for the two faces with a contrasting mirror polished stainless steel outer edge and a brushed stainless steel inner edge, giving an added sense of drama and depth.

Materials  |  Delivery |  Prices

The sculptures can be made from either mild steel corten steel, or stainless steel or a combination of steel and stainless steel.
.

Mild Steel, this is left to oxidise natrually with the rusted finish continually evolving with time to form a rich warm patina.

.

Corten Steel, a steel that naturally rusts, but unlike mild steel the rusting process actually forms a corrosion-retarding protective layer. In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to form the ‘protective’ coating.

.

Stainless Steel, unlike steel and aluminium, stainless steel doesn’t corrode when exposed to the elements. A variety of surface treatments can be applied from brushed, to satin to the highly polished mirror finish.
