Curved Wood Sculptural Art .
Some years ago I experimented with the steam bending of timber , this loosens the lignin [ the cellular structure ] in the wood to allow shapes to be made using a pre cast "form". After cooling , the piece retains permanently its new shape .
In conjunction with an artist friend , ex Royal Marine Commando Ed Astbury , PO5359OA , I have created these pieces of sculptural art .
They measure 36" wide by 20" tall ,,, 92cm by 51 cm ,,, and have 3 curves to give the 3D effect . The wood comprising the piece is 1 inch thick,,,25mm. They come with wall fixings on the back .
The curved wood reminded us of a furled flag so Eds artwork was done accordingly, the British Union Jack in the style of American painter Jackson Pollock , and the Stars and Stripes both "normal " and in the same Pollock style. Whilst the style is the same , obviously every one will be intrinsically different and therefore utterly unique. Each one would be numbered and signed on the reverse.
The price of these hand made pieces of art are ,
UK, £225 including Post and Packing to mainland.
