The depiction of things natural is intimately connected with the most ancient forms of human mark making and the fascinating Golden Ratio so evident in the Ammonite informed Mark Reed’s ‘Ammonite Absolute’ bronze sculpture. The gold plated surface of the bronze sculpture contrasts with the organic, warm, soft chestnut interior of the Ammonite septa that will mellow and patinate with age. The bright, reflective gold surface of the sculpture reflects the glistening shimmering pool creating an aesthetic delight which will retain it’s lustre with the passing of time.
The figurative ‘Ammonite Slice’ creates a dramatic 1 tonne monumental centrepiece sculpture in a private house or contemporary hotel it draws the eye and frames a hedge in a landscaped garden, among the lilting flowers in a cottage garden or as a focal point on a terrace in an urban garden.
The abstract solid bronze sculpture creates reflective surfaces on its organic form, reflecting the surroundings and drawing the viewer in. This elemental sea sculpture is particularly enchanting in palatial private houses by the sea, luxury spas or as sculpture for yacht interiors. It can also be scaled up to form a monumental sculpture.
