Profile image of Philip MellingPhilip Melling is working predominantly in metals, Philip creates an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture.
His style ranges from figurative to abstract, often curvaceous and tactile, but with a coarseness that is lent from working with bare steel.
The current collection `Elements` focuses on Earth, Air, Water and Fire, and describes the reaction of when those elements meet.

Sculpture description:
Steel Table Sculpture - representing the petrification of molten elements
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.
This version of Basilisk is larger in size than it`s brothers, and I have used larger material to create it.
The increase in size has a dynamic effect - it is my new favourite piece.
All Basilisk sculptures are based on the same concept, but vary in form to make them unique pieces

"It is not hard to understand modern art. If it hangs on a wall it's a painting, and if you can walk around it it's a sculpture."

Customer comment on 'Accepting (abstract Seated Woman Sitting statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter,

I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning.

You cannot p... [Read more]
