Sculpture description:
Steel vase coated with resin on the inside. The surface has been textured with welding techniques, then satin polished. The textured pattern is reminiscent of a petrified surface or scaled animal skin, the polished scales contrasting with the dark oxide layer of the surface around them. The resin makes it suitable for holding water, but weldvessels can also be displayed as art objects and look wonderful in small groups. Contemporary Abstract Steel Table Vase Sculptures for indoors or inside the House or Office and Gallery- representing the Movement of Elements including animal scales rising up through it`s tubular form, by Philip Melling who captures the Nature of Elements so Brilliantly and Beautifully every time.He Is interested in discussing Custom or Commission Variations in Size and Design.

"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."
