dressage sculpture chosen for trophy
I was recently asked to create a perpetual trophy from one of my wire sculptures. The horse and rider are created from a single strand of copper wire, which is then nickel-plated, resulting in a shiny chrome-like finish.
The event was a dressage competition, so I designed the base in an oval shape with a rim, painted black to resemble a top hat!
I attached the sculpture to the base with several tiny eye-hook screws... a very challenging endeavour! ...but the end result was quite stunning. I thought I would share it.
