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:
Contemporary Steel Garden Abstract Sculpture for the Outside in the Garden or Outdoors on the Estate, inspired by the draw of the Olympic Recurve Bow, or Post Modern Metal Bow Shaped Abstract Beautiful Statue, by Philip Melling who is so willing to discuss Commission for Custom work of a similar nature

The sculpture has been rusted using salts then sealed with a clear lacquer, giving the surface a beautiful and interesting textured finish
Artist's comments:
Following an Olympic theme, and trying to capture concepts of energy and movement, I was drawn to the shape of the recurve bow.

The pre-weathered finish is one that I love, it can take up to two weeks of wetting and salting the surface before I get the colour and texture I want. I then use a tough lacquer to seal the oxidisation

"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."
