Abstract Containers - Bio Resin and Brass made 2014
I have taught many young children in my career and witnessed their freedom when drawing and painting. It's a freedom I see in many artists that I admire such as Jean Arp, or Matisse. These containers are a little nod to my favourite abstract artists, including those children.
Freehand forms were drawn on wood, then cut out to make a die. The brass was then pressed into the die using a hydraulic press and the two halves then soldered together. They were then connected to the resin containers.
