RELEASE is my submission piece for Sculpture in Context 2020 which has gone virtual this year as it was not possible to hold the exhibition as usual in the National Botanic Gardens.
RELEASE is an oversized cleat, inspired by the cleats found on a boat or ship to which ropes are attached to secure to a dock or quay.
It was imagined to give a feeling of hope and ‘RELEASE’ as we come out of lockdown this year and find some freedom in this new world, living with Covid 19.
This piece is designed to be placed in a garden, patio or balcony and can be used as outdoor bench or simply a piece of garden art.
RELEASE is Handmade in Marine Grade Stainless Steel polished to a mirror finish.
The brushed Copper screw heads are countersunk into the body of the cleat exactly as you would find on a marine cleat.
