Pollen Bomb

£10,000

Edition: 2 of 5

Made from: Cor-ten Steel

"Pollen Bomb" was the first of three large forms I have created which are derived from botany and biology but fabricated using multiple geometric shapes to create strange otherworldly objects reminiscent of munitions and spacecraft. My intention was to reflect some of the anxiety I feel about the times we live in and the uncertainty about the future.
The sculpture was based on a pollen grain form but its size and use of rusted Cor-ten steel evokes sea mines and creates an air of menace.
