Profile image of Philip MellingPhilip Melling is working predominantly in metals, Philip creates an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture.

Sculpture description:
Steel Garden sculpture, inspired by the draw of the Olympic Recurve Bow.
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:
This sculpture was originally a concept model for a larger exhibition piece, but it then became a piece in it`s own right.
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.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
