A contemporary sculpture depicting a leaping salmon. The sculpture is forged and fabricated from 316 stainless steel. A proportion the shape of the salmon is made up of sheet stainless steel and forms the bottom outline of the salmon with a smooth polished finish.
The rest of the salmon is made up of smaller salmon shaped pieces of stainless steel. A texture is forged onto these elements and gives the sculpture the scaly effect of the salmon . These pieces are then formed to make up the remaining outline of the salmon. The curved shape of the sculpture aims to emulate the leaping salmon and is formed by heating and bending the steel. The stainless steel sculpture was electro – polished and sealed with a sealant.
