‘Superleggera’ (Octane Award)
Octane Magazine Commission – 2017 Editor’s Choice Award
Worldwide motoring magazine, Octane, commissioned me to produce their ‘Editor’s Choice Award’ trophy for The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in California this August.
‘Superleggera’ – Steam twisted wood & engineered aluminium sculpture
The brief was for something stylish, elegant & different to anything before it. My love of wood & flowing aerodynamic forms was perfectly matched to produce a sculptural work of art, mounted on an engineered aluminium base, CNC milled from a solid of aircraft grade lightweight aluminium.
