Art Description

Sculpture: Metal, Steel on Stainless Steel.

Stainless steel sculpture. Even reflected, it maintains the same facial expression, halfway giggly and amazed.

Made up of assembled steel parts.
It can contain liquids and it is suitable as flower vase or ice box for bottles.

The fold in the middle shows the mysterious and selfware expression of the protagonist of the ballet opera by Bela Bartok “The Miraculous Mandarin” (Csodalatos Mandarin).

This sculpture is the craftsman interpretation of an industrial process, and it is an example of how serious planning applied to an initial feeling may help overcome boundaries, e.g. between industrial production and work of art.

A press moulding ten thousand pieces a day, following the same layout indefinitely, has produced a flawed item. This is considered error by the industry but it may become unique in the view of an artist and designer thanks to envisaging the product to be, together with the planning ability which will guide the action towards the final work.

Vision of the complete work and accurate process design to get to the whole: here goes the work of an artist and designer.
