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 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., Another Philip Melling Minimalist Masterpiece
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.

Customer comment on 'Sidewind 2 (Bronze abstract Figures in wind statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter

Just to say how thrilled and delighted we are with our recent sculpture purchased through Art Parks online – “When I Saw You” by Kay Singla (a truly gifted artist and wonderful person).
