ARTEFACTS by paul pibworth
This Crucifix I am making from many hundreds of Crosses welded together. Each one made by welding 2 cut & clasp nails end beside end, cutting a 3rd nail in half & welding it to the others forming a small Cross. The next stage is to weld these Crosses together generating a mesh, then folding this mesh to create the large 3 dimensional Crucifix.
The Crucifix I wish to send on a tour of Churches and I want to fund this project by selling the individual Crosses, Crowd Funding. Each Church I will ask to buy a minimum of 20 small Crosses at £25 each, 25% will go back to the Churches and these establishments will have the loan of the large Crucifix for 1 month. Each person donating £25 will receive a small Crucifix made from the cut & clasp nails.
Crossed Nails (Artefact)
Left over from the Crown of Nails, I give these away occasionally as presents. I have to have a special friend or special reason to give them.
Cinderella Bed (furniture)
Vine Candle holder(Artefact)
This extensively forge steel candlestick has a tortured whipped and twisted vine effect all over. This stood around 3 feet tall and four foot in length.
Have written stories and rants on red ribbon in the past I wanted to see if I could re-animate the flexion of the ribbon in Stainless Steel. I called this piece “Flexion” but equally I call it flag…. Work that one out?
This was made as a golf competition trophy. It has been made in the memory of the clubs owner. I can remember her always with a smile on her face. She passed out, fell into a coma and never regained consciousness after saying, “Come on Mr P. (her husband) we had better leave, we have outstayed our welcome”, whilst leaving my parents home. I think even she will laugh at the irony.
Letter G (Artefact) - March 2014
The Brick (Artefact)
I have re-invented the common house brick! It was fun & I love the look of it now its done!
Rock Steel Scissors (Artefact)
This is a distant relative to the Ribbon. I wanted to see how I could envelop. In a way I was cheating while playing rock, paper, scissors. 1, 2, 3, Steel! Huh! That beats your rock!
