About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – The beautiful Morgan Aeromax first debuted at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, and was limited to just 100 examples. With it’s distinctive inward angled headlamps, it remains a definitive stylish car design, whose sweeping curves inspire this sculpture.

THE SCULPTURE – Hand bent ash hardwood vertical planes capture the defining curves of the car, bending to a tapered point at the rear like the real car. Carbon Fibre hoops define the wheel locations, headlamps and the distinctive letterbox windscreen. 3d printed grill completes the iconic Morgan front end.

THE LOOK – This sculpture accentuates Matthew Humphries’ stunning design by elongating the form to be lower and longer. A flame polished black acrylic spine adds contrast and silhouettes the key shapes of the side window shape. The result is a curvaceous and tactile form to cherish.
