Kate’s artwork for ROCLA – Patinated Metal Sculpture
Kate has been commission to produce a Patinated Metal Sculpture for the ROCLA Art Project. She was inspired by research at both RHP and the Linford Lakes Nature Reserve and looking at Water lilies floating in the water that reflected the sky. Considering the structure of the Bulrush, using strong vertical detail that is softened by filigree details and engraving and textured surfaces. Watching dragonfly’s wings catch the light as they zip over the water. This local natural environment and wildlife has directly influenced the design of this beautiful piece made of metal and materials that will patinate through time. Exposure to the environment will enable the piece to evolve and mature alongside the space it sits in, lacquer controlling this process. The piece of art will be made out of copper with possible stainless steel details to give integral strength and to increase durability. Solar power will provide subtle lighting.
