Profile image of David CorbettAfter graduating from Wimbledon School of Art with a first class degree, David Corbett began a career as an independent sculptor.

Sculpture description:
Copper Coin Life Size Nude Male Torso sculptures for sale By David Corbett who writes "This stunning life size sculpture was originally modeled in clay before being molded and cast using 1p and 2p coins. To begin with, a life model was observed and carefully measured to build up the sculpture, from bone structure through to muscle form. The pose of the model had a slight twist to accentuate the overall form of the subject, and create a more dynamic piece.

The mold taken from this torso was used to create `Bent Copper`, which was made by carefully bending the coins and layering them inside the mould, following the contours of the muscles. Being made in this way the piece maintains the form and detail of the original subject.

The sculpture has a historic feel as the coins used cover every decade from the 70`s onward. The coins range in tone and reflect light differently depending on which angle the piece is viewed from.

It is possible to polish the coins and create a dazzling finish that shines. Please contact me to discuss the effect of your choice.
Artist's comments:
Whilst being exhibited at the Southampton Boat Show, the sculpture drew a crowd of people who were fascinated by the man made of coins. Being a very tactile piece, people couldn`t help touching the scaly, metallic surface.

`Bent Copper` is suitable for Indoor or Outdoor spaces. If placed outdoors, over time the copper will age and change colour creating another unique effect. It is the perfect piece to create a talking point in any garden or home and has also proved to be a popular sculpture within corporate spaces.

Customer comment on 'Standing female (nude Contemporary Wall statue/decoration/sculpture)' by William Ashley-Norman
This lovely sculpture has been arrived without any problem. Now it is sitting in my house. We will move it to our new place for public showcase when the whole decoration has finished.

I will keep you update with our project soon. Thanks for your big help, anyway. We are still evaluating the whole space to see if we need to purchase one or two Nikki Taylor`s sculptures as well.
