Michael Turner es un artista que hace esculturas de metal únicas utilizando como material básico el acero inoxidable. Domina especialmente el arte de esculpir animales y esta es una buena muestra.
Octopus : Heat-treated and Polished
"After obtaining my honours Degree in 3D Multidisciplinary Design at Buckinghamshire College in 1997, I started experimenting with various welding and metalwork techniques. Now most of my work is sculpted in stainless steel as it is an enduring and adaptable medium.
My inspiration predominantly comes from nature in all its forms. I am especially fascinated by insects which I never tire of reproducing, experimenting constantly with different types of finishes on the basic stainless steel. I use polishing, paint and heat effects to produce a unique piece every time".
My work is exhibited in selected galleries and recently featured in Harvey Nichols’ London and Edinburgh stores, as well as the Royal West of England Academy.
I work mainly to commission and will tackle most projects my clients will throw at me!
