Wallpiece RCB 17.02

$1,975

Metal Wall Sculpture
by Reed C Bowman

Patinaed brass
28”H, 7”W, 1.5”D

Gently domed, long, low relief wallpiece with gentle, sweeping curves, ideal for a narrow space of wall. This set of wallpieces originally reminded me of African shields, but in this one you may find it suggests a cocoon, spindle, caped figure, or something from deep underwater or deep space. This style of wallpiece is formed of brass and copper sheet, cut by hand and dished with hammers, and colored using traditional and modern sculptural patinas. This piece can be hung in any orientation, and may be hung outdoors in a sheltered location.

 

 

David and Reed Bowman are a father and son studio, with over sixty years design experience creating works at all scales in patinaed brass and copper. Most of the wallpieces are constructed of brass sheet folded into boxes and colored using traditional and modern sculptural patinas.

Their design aesthetic combines the philosophies of wabi-sabi and minimalism to create works that cannot be created using more modern techniques or more industrial scale tools. Taking inspiration from sculpture, architecture, painting, and even armory of all periods, they create unique designs, which they fabricate entirely in-house, with nothing farmed out, and using only hand-tools and simple machines.
