‘Olive Leaf’ is engineered to oscillate on the breath of a wind and has a truly mesmeric movement.
The silver leaves are made from Stainless Steel. The ground facets within the surface reflect the light in an almost holographic way, causing the light to dance on the surface.
There are various possibilities concerning shape, height and finish when designing the Sculpture plinths. The two materials I usually work with to create the plinths are Weathering Steel and Galvanised/Mordent finished Steel, both incredibly durable.
Weathering Steel (cor-ten) is a steel alloy which does not require painting and acquires a stable, rust-like appearance over time. It’s surface has a matt textured finish with a wonderful depth of colour which changes from a light orange to a deep purple over the decades.
Galvanised Steel with a mordent finish leaves a soft textured matt surface with a wonderfully interesting pewter/lead colouring that will darken when wet.
