Art Description

Sculpture: Bronze and Resin on Bronze and Other.

This work was originally made for the London Olympic Games in 2012. The work was situated in the Olympic Village for all the athletes and dignitaries to see.

It was inspired by a visit to Greece while learning more about the mythology of Icarus at the time that I was learning to fly myself.

It is a piece full of movement, joy and life. A young boy decides to fly freely to escape captivity and eventually flies too close to the sun so that the feathers, attached with wax, melt and he falls to the sea.

The work is loosely modeled which helps with light and movement when cast into bronze.


Icarus I is one of an edition of only 6 bronzes. Each bronze is hand finished and so each patination colour is unique to the edition piece.

If the current edition piece has been sold it will take about 8-12 weeks to produce the new work. Please bear this in mind when you order.
