About the Artwork

Contemporary Bronze Fluid Form Monumental Sculpture, a Conceptualised Abstract Commission statue, intellegently placed in an Urban setting created by John Atkin who expands interestingly further…..
” Vessel is based on ideas relating to notions of a container, as well as alluding to modelling tools used in the manufacturing of ceramic products.
This design concept explores notions of a vessel, which is synonymous with pottery and craft traditions. Although it’s not possible to make this in ceramic (other than on a small-scale) and for it to be sufficiently robust within a public space, Atkin will patina or paint the surface of the artwork to reflect the green glaze synonymous with this the history and heritage of glaze pottery. The suggested material for this sculpture is bronze, but equally it could be made using fabricated corten steel.
A Vessel is also something associated with travel, journeys or expeditions, which is particularly interesting given Atkin`s British background and the sense of exploration suggested by the undulating forms of the sculpture.
This sculpture has distinct human characteristics, with its slow wave-like motion.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
