Emily Stone Copper Beetroot Sculpture 5

Emily Stone Copper Beetroot Sculpture

I was really excited with this new work (February 2022), and in particular, the colours. The contrast between the grubby root vegetable and the foliage works really well. Like nearly all my colouring, the effects are created purely by heating the copper and quenching it; then the piece is lacquered to exclude the air, so that those colours will be retained.

The piece is made with three hidden hanging-loops, and is intended as a wall sculpture, but could also be displayed anywhere you wish.

30cm wide, 70cm long and 15cm deep; £365
