Twisted Form features coiled bands that spiral into a curved form with a delicate row of knots worked vertically down the inside of the sculpture to create a delicate seam.

Inspired by creatures that create delicate structures around themselves as protection. The knots once cast become forever preserved in bronze and offers a view into the interior of the sculpture which is mounted onto a plinth at a slight angle.

Bronze sculpture - Unique cast of 1 and wooden base.

Should you wish to have the sculpture displayed outside, please select ‘Outside Display’, the sculpture will have the base changed from wood to a speckled grey granite.

How Its Made: Each sculpture begins with a sketch and an idea of size and scale required. To create the hollow forms of the sculpture a negative solid core is required, made from a carved block of investment plaster. Lengths of 6mm wax are worked across the surface laying down a linear spiralling pattern, and secured in place with a seam of knots worked in waxed linen.

This unique wax sculpture is transported to the foundry to be transformed into bronze using the lost wax technique, where every individual strand of wax is preserved. 

The sculpture is finished with the artists signature stamp, given a polish of bees wax and attached onto a wooden plinth.

Bronze requires very little maintenance to keep it looking great for years to come, just a light polish with a bees wax based polish is all that it needs.
