Sculpture description:
Post Modern Minimalist Steel Small Abstract Table Sculpture - representing the petrification of molten elements, Brilliantly Interpreted by Philip Melling, who welcome suggestions of Commissions or Customized Variations
Artist's comments:
The sculpture represents layers of molten earth that have built up over time, the once liquid form evident but now frozen. Developing the sculpture I concentrated on the proccess of using repetitive form of material - flat steel bar, to generate concepts and capture the movement of elemental reactions. The sculpture can be sized to fit any space. All Basilisk sculptures are based on the same concept, but vary in form to make them unique pieces

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
