Resin, 23 carat gold-leaf and brass – 3m x 3m.
Adams Vine is made up of 1000 cast and gilded husks strung on brass wire and trained up an interior wall in Classical Rococo style. The composition is versatile. It can be trained up a vertical interior wall, across a ceiling or floor or suspended within a framework to create a division of internal space.
The piece was inspired by the 18th century Neoclassical designer and architect, Robert Adams who was described in his obituary as, ‘a genius in elegant ornament’. The Adam style incorporated elements of classical Roman design alongside Greek, Byzantine and Baroque styles.
Adams Vine is the first in a series of Architectural Vines. The piece is available to commission with variations in scale, husk design and finish.
