Serpentine – Sculpture created from found objects

Serpentine is a sculpture created from recycled roll-cage tubing, scrap metal off-cuts and found objects. I fabricated the sculpture by reshaping the tubing and welding to my desired shape. I have left this sculpture to rust as I really like the reddish patina – it will outlive me.

New sculpture titled Immutatus – upcycled roll cage and boules

Immutatus is a sculpture created from recycled steel tubing, steel rod and pétanque balls. I have allowed part of the surface to rust, whilst other areas have been spayed with a variety of colours. I built up the layers of paint and then in areas I used a grinder cut back – sometimes right back to metal.

I have worked on this over many months as I kept changing my mind; a layer paint, leave it for a while, another layer of paint, grind back, repaint, let it rust, repaint and so on.
