ROOM WITH A SEAVIEW: Art commission. Size 67 inches at its widest point. Made of 1mm mild steel (top sheet), 1mm aluminium (under sheet) and copper (boats). The scene was to depict the view from my clients window.  It reflects the sands whilst the tide is out, which leaves behind pools of water and several stranded small fishing boats. The timelessness of nature was acknowledged by using the precision of a laser cut; the sand and sea older than the man-made boats but the boats aged and worn which was acknowledged by using a plasma cut. The beautiful colours within the metals were brought out by heating with a blow torch.
