OASIS Stainless Steel Sculpture by Grant Designs

ART at the Mill Garden

August 2, 2023 | Grant | Reading Time: 2 minutes

Delighted to be exhibiting Oasis Stainless Steel Sculpture, at Grennan Mill, Thomastown in association with The Kilkenny Art Gallery nd The Berkley Gallery again this year.

This exhibition coincides with the Three Kilkenny Arts Festivals running during August.

My inspiration for Oasis came from the intricate and organic shapes of ornamental grasses and lilies seen growing in ponds and gardens.

Oasis features multiple blade-like leaves that rise from a base, each displaying a complex curve that mirrors the natural shapes and contours of these plants, providing a unique and visually engaging focal point in a garden or pond.

The sculpture’s design is intended to be both dynamic and organic, reflecting the beauty and complexity of nature while also providing an impression of movement when reflecting its surroundings.

Designed in Marine Grade Stainless Steel, each blade is made in two separate sections that are cold-formed to create these intricate reverse curves.

The top sections of each blade has been polished to a mirror finish, creating a striking and reflective surface that will catch the light and reflect the surroundings.

In contrast, the underside of the blades has a sateen finish, with etched vein detail, giving the piece a subtle and elegant texture.

This major collection of Fine Art and Sculpture is on view from Sunday 6th August from 11.00am to 6.00pm daily until end of the month.
