Backstroke – Copper

Sculpture of a section of an athletic female back in cold cast copper. In fact it’s an amalgam of her back in two positions, optimising her physicality and concentrating on her structure. It’s a study of all the shapes one makes as a finger is run down the spine, hence the title Backstroke.

This artist’s proof was ordered for a private home and I designed a leather bound base with copper details for it to compliment their decor. It’s not uncommon for me to alter pieces for particular locations. As with many of my sculptures of body sections, they can be ordered free standing or wall hanging depending on your needs

Cold casting is the a process by which powered metal (in this case coper) is blended with catalysed resin and cast into a mould. When hardened the high metal content can be polished to a bright shine resembling foundry cast metals but at a significantly lower cost. They are a strong but lightweight alternative to foundry cast metals such as bronze.
