There is a lot to say when it comes to the creation of commercial sculptures. It is beyond wonderful to be able to sell your art and share your passion with others. Each piece will mean something different to anyone who gets the chance to view it. No two people will have the exact same experience when it comes to looking at art pieces.
Being able to create and sell art for a living is the dream of many people, however, very few are able to use it as their only source of income. This is what makes us at Elliott of London so lucky. We are able to do what we love every day which is a rare thing indeed.
The Purpose of Commercial Sculptures
Commercial sculptures have many benefits, but what is their actual purpose? Opinions do vary drastically on this matter. For some, they view these art pieces as frivolous, both a waste of time and money.
However, we do not agree with that particular opinion. For many people, commercial art can be used to inspire creativity within people and brighten their lives. Art can help to promote, explain and inform others by using design.
For example, our very own racing horse sculpture at full stretch is not only a beautiful piece of artwork. It depicts a horse at full stretch with the jockey upon its back. This sculpture can be used to promote horse racing, but it also gives people an idea of what the sport involves.
Sculptures and art, in general, can be used to convey a message in a subtle way. The purpose of many art pieces is to give information to those who view them. This is one of the things that set commercial art apart from other forms of art.
When creating art for a commercial purpose you are able to express a part of yourself to those who see it. If you are able to incorporate an important message into your work your art may be able to further a positive cause or educate people on an important topic.
One example of spreading information would be our very own racehorse sculpture. This piece has been used to educate those on the dangers that come with horseracing by promoting the Injured Jokey Charity. Every time we sell one of these sculptures we donate 5% to the aforementioned charity. This is just one example of how commercial sculptures can be used to spread information and further a cause.
Explain Complicated Concepts
Our rearing horse sculpture is a handcrafted, lifesize sculpture of a horse standing on its hind legs. As you can see, it has been created delicately using 8mm round steel. The shapes that we have created with the steel flow down the length of the structure and indicate the power of the animal that is being depicted.
Further, this sculpture is given a zinc exterior and a galvanised finish. This not only enhances the beauty of the sculpture but will also keep the piece safe from nature and resistant to rust for over 30 years!
