Creating a solid stainless steel sculpture requires a labour intensive technique. Like carving a block of marble, fusing strips of stainless steel with a welder till the required shape is achieved is painstaking for each individual sculpture, resulting in an elegant finish and an artwork which will last until the next5millennium.


There is of course no comparison with bronze casting, where a model is made of soft clay or plaster, and is used perhaps hundreds of times to cast copies of the same piece.
