'Fractured' - a unique edition
An exploration into fragility, this piece was driven by the process. Using a finish in which the london plane was scorched and tinted blue had been decided, but not the form to use it with. A simple box was created, then scorched to corrupt its form. The place it fractured most became the focal point in the form for further experimentation. After the sculptural form was resolved, some aditional brass splints were used to support the structure, overtly signally a weakness. Built from london plane, brass and leather. This is a unique piece.
