"I’ve always been drawn to cubism; for me it is the ultimate form of expression. Ever since seeing my first Picasso, Braque and Matisse I have been fixated with how a subject can be simplified to minimal, essential forms yet produce powerful and provocative images. These vessels embody the conflict between 2 and 3 dimensional art, creating a playful visual conundrum." - JP Roberts
These vessels are comprised of cut and layered steel. The completed vessels are chemically treated with various finishes, hand rubbed to highlight details and then sealed. Each vessel is narrow enough to sit on a window sill.
Two dimensional steel vase sculpture that incorporates a 3 dimensional opening at the top allowing cut flowers to be inserted. A small glass vase is mounted on the back to hold flowers in fresh water. Abstract design gives a sense of movement. Multiple hand rubbed patinas give the appearance of depth and a 3 dimensional "feel" that playfully tricks the eye. Signed and dated. About 22" tall at the front, 23.5" at back. 9.5" across the widest area. Base 9" x 4". Vase is large enough for a small bouquet of flowers.
