Profile image of Will CarrUsing steel Will Carr recreates the intricacies of natural forms and phenomena’s. Texture allows me to make this very strong, rigid medium appear soft with elegance to mimic or accentuate its surroundings. My passion in science and nature, especially the micro-world, has expanded my fascination for understanding how the world interacts; from the intrinsic properties of nature at molecular and biological levels, up to the eternal questions that face our world. My aim is for others to feel inspired in order to perceive the unusual aspects of our...

Sculpture description:
Big Steel Metal Common Frog Garden or Yard sculpture, or Giant Steel Frog statue for Outside in the Garden or outdoors in the Yard, by Will Carr who somehow manages to create realistic wild animal sculpture from fabricated steel, by the Award Winning Sculptor Will Carr

This piece is one of my most ambitious animal sculptures to date, the frog has such a complex shape that I wanted to test myself to see if I could replicate its form. The form this animal has created to fulfil its niche is fascinating, its muscle structure and proportions to leap great distances in relation to its size is impressive. The texture on this sculpture is all painstakingly drawn on which gives a nice rough realistic finish, varnished to protect and help look like he has just emerged from water. My construction method allows me to get the complex shape of the muscles on the frog by bending 150meters of 6mm steel bar layered next to each other.
Artist's comments:
This outdoor garden sculpture is made entirely of steel and varnished to ensure longevity. The skin texture is carefully drawn on with a welder to give a realistic surface finish.

"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."

Customer comment on 'Dog Fox' by Tessa Hayward
Dear Peter,
Enclosed is photo of my lovely fox, placed into an area which I`m developing as a small bluebell and white birch woodland. I`m absolutely delighted with the sculpture!
Would you please pass a copy on to Tessa (Hayward), with my thanks and very best wishes.
