Sculpture: Bronze on Bronze, Other.
Icarus was created after a visit to a Greek Island. I was learning how to fly at the time and the two ideas met in this form.
I love the idea of this young, fearless male leaping off into the sky to his destiny.
Bronze is the oldest metal alloy that mankind has worked. It was first used in the Bronze age, but refined by the ancient Greeks and continuously used as an art form ever since and so it is a perfect medium for this subject matter
Icarus III is one of an edition of only 9 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 4-6 weeks to produce the new work. Please bear this in mind when you order.
