The making of a sculpture

25TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY GIFT

Here you can view the process of making this beautiful sculpture and read the story and inspiration behind the design.

This commission was something a little different for me in terms of the straight edges and lines.

Dave wanted a 25th anniversary gift for his wife. Their initials were D & T and he wanted it kept simple. We worked together on the design, the placement and the font of the letters.

I enjoyed the precision required. I did the 25 in the same font as the D & T in relief and with a textured background for contrast.

The sculpture stands 800mm tall and weighs around 80kg.
