Embrace Sculpture

£11,500.00

‘Embrace’ was crafted from interlocking forms, resembling the close embrace of two figures, a mother and child. The silver combined with the gold interior, and the curvaceous shape creates a feel of warmth and comfort.

This piece was hand raised from two sheets of silver, which were cut and bent into shape. The decorative lines were created through the technique of chasing and repousse. The sections have then been placed together and soldered onto a base, with the interior partially gold leafed.
