Sculpture & Design were commissioned by Thomas Dane Gallery to fabricate a previously made sculpture by Phillip King called “Reel”. Working from photos of the existing work, and Phillip, we 3D modelled the work before fabricating. The piece itself is fabricated from stainless steel before being painted with automative paint. The double curved piece had to be specially fabricated by an engineering firm in the Netherlands. The rest was fabricated in our studio, with careful attention to connection details and the surface of the steel which had to be perfectly smooth before painting.
