The Scarlet Angel

Jasper Johns Blacksmith

Based on the idea of blood and the underlying common denominator of existence that blood implies. I tried to involve a sense of each individual being or creature being dependent and supported by their counterparts. The idea was to make a sense of the whole out of these individul parts. It includes both the so called 'beautiful side of existence and the 'brutal' side of it.

It's forged from 80 x 80 bright mild steel and it's 14 feet high and 16 feet wide. The base that is shown is only temporary and I would be wanting to make a semi circular concrete base which would double as a bench.

Bronze

Jasper Johns Blacksmith

This sculpture is called Bronze because it is based around the idea of two very soft things making something very strong. I was looking at a baby asleep with a blanket wrapped round her and both shapes were very gentle but the combination of the two shapes produced a very strong form. Bronze is made out of tin and copper both of which are very soft but together they form one of the hardest metals. Approx. 400mm x 500mm x 200mm. Not for Sale.
