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.

Artist's comments:
This artwork is made from satin polished stainless steel, and suitable for installation inside or outside. The `Basilisk` sits in a simple ring, giving the sculpture a different aspect from other Basilisk sculptures. The sculpture is wall mounted and measures H 1000 x W 1300 x D 70mm. Developing the collection I concentrated on the process of using repetitive form of material - flat steel bar, to generate concepts and capture the movement of elements and their reactions. I am always mindful of the negative space created within these sculptures, which I feel gives as important an aspect as the positive form. The forms were originally designed for indoor display, but have since been developed to also suit outside installations for private or public spaces. All the sculptures are hand crafted from steel, stainless steel, bronze or copper and vary in form, size or finish to make them unique pieces.

Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
