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. Developing the collection Melling concentrated on the process of using repetitive form of material - flat steel bar, to generate concepts and capture the...

Sculpture description:
The University of Warwick have just reached their 50th anniversary, and wanted to commission a sculpture that celebrated and gave thanks to all the benefactors who have contributed over the years to their success. The sculpture is made from a series of stainless steel rings which have 300 benefactor`s names engraved on their surface. These embody the concept of a ripple effect, and how such donations have influenced the Universityís future. Those who have contributed to the University include the founding donors - who helped the university in itís formative years, as well as more recent donors - who have been instrumental in enabling the University to develop and grow into the site of excellence it is today. The sculpture was unveiled on October 16th by the University`s Vice Chancellor Professor Sir Nigel Thrift, during a ceremony attended by a large group of University benefactors and staff. `Ripple Effect` measures H 2060 x W 2000 x D 800mm
Artist's comments:
My aim in approaching the commission was to design a piece that commemorated the universityís benefactors whilst avoiding the static look that plaques and monoliths typically have. The sculpture needed to embody vibrance, movement and the continuous changes that have occurred and continue to occur because of the benefactorsí generosity and support - a ripple effect. Even though the sculpture is made from metal which in itself is a heavy material, I hope to capture a lightness of form that suggests a feeling of fluid opportunity. And the sculpture itself will continue to grow, as future donorsí names are added in the years to come.

Customer comment on 'Accepting (abstract Seated Woman Sitting statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter, I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning.
