Black Brass Pedestal. Entirely handmade from solid brass sheet metal. 232 individual hand-cut brass 'shingles' are fixed with over 480 solid copper rivets. A frame made from solid brass provides the underlying structural frame. The sizes and spacing of the brass 'shingles' has been determined using sacred geometry and the Fibonacci number series. This provides for interesting and harmonious patterns to be produced by the shingles and rivets. All colours are produced by hand-applied traditional acid patina techniques. No paints have been used. The edges of each brass shingle have been polished to remove the black patina, producing a fine polished-brass edge detail. Patinas reflect light very differently to paints! Being formed of metal, patinas possess the ability to produce a range of interference type colours. With this piece of art-furniture, the observed colours will subtly change from bronzes to blacks, depending on the lighting and viewing angle. I consider the top to be one of the most beautiful patinas I have produced in over 20 years. Great as a pedestal table to display a small sculpture. Or install as a unique feature piece in your home or business. Finished with a clear lacquer. 13.2 kg (29 lb)

As a boy I used to love spending hours drawing complex geometrical patterns with compasses; then colouring them in with pencils to make wonderfully complex, psychedelic pictures. I did not know it at the time, but I was using basic rules of sacred geometry to create mandala-type pictures. Years later, after completing my MSc, I spent 20 odd years in construction and architecture. I am fortunate to now work full-time as an artist. I work with both acrylic paints and metals to produce a range of paintings, metal wall sculpture, and custom copper interior design features. A feature of all of my metal artwork is that they are finished with hand-applied authentic & traditional acid patina finishes. Each and every patina has a distinctive character and personality. It is these subtle differences that ensure each piece is truly unique. Every patina finish is as individual as a person’s fingerprint. Everything is designed, handmade and finished by me. All my artwork is strongly guided by mathematical and geometrical proportions, especially those relating to circles (Plato’s ‘Perfect Form’) and the Fibonacci number series (AKA the Divine Proportion, the Golden Ratio, and the Sacred Cut). The broad underlying philosophy behind my art is exploring the apparent geometrical and harmonic relationships that appear to occur at all scales in the universe; from the quantum world to the cosmic scale, and probably into higher dimensions. All of creation appears to be determined and guided by the invisible pulse (Shiva’s drum). Plato succinctly surmised this concept, “God ever geometrises”.
