(Abstract Sculpture)

The inspiration for King-Post is the truss shape of the Covered Slips in the Historic Dockyard Chatham. The sculpture is constructed from the modular form of two square section pieces of steel rod, welded together at an angle of 45 degrees. This modular shape can be articulated through space and welded to any of the 14 points of its corresponding shape. Therefore, the sculpture grew intuitively until I was happy with the form. Six longer rods tie the whole structure together and allow it to stand stably. I used the same methodology in Triangulum and Quintessence. Exhibited at No.1 Smithery Gallery, Rhondda Heritage Park and the Kaleidoscope Gallery.

Welded Steel.
